  • The Era of Wearable Computing

    There’s been a lot of chat about Google Glass recently.  With 1500 people piloting the hardware and the concept of wearable computing getting its first notices, it’s easy to understand.  But I think in one way we might be mistaken.  The era of wearable computing didn’t start with Google Glass.  Like many things it started even before there really was such a thing.  I pin the epoch’s initialization to August 2009.  That’s when none other than Brad Pitt posed for the cover of Wired magazine.  Somewhere in small print the cover has these words: “Ditch the headset. This guy can barely pull it off and you’re not him.”  I’ve never seen or heard a more succinct and on target analysis.  hahaha!
