Here’s my prediction of what a modern wearable computer will be, just for the sake of having it out there with a time stamp attached. Why am I saying this? Because it’s Sunday morning, I am really tired, and I was looking at funny computer patents, courtesy Technologizer.
Modern wearable computers will not be dedicated computers at all, in the sense that laptop or desktop is just a computer. Instead, wearable computing will become an extension of the far more agile smartphone market. The market will need four technologies: wireless video transmission, wireless data transmission, heads up displays and eye tracking. All four of these technologies exist today.
