They represent a very broad category of technology that include among others smart watches, glasses, tattoos, clothes and shoes that have sensors in it which gather information and data while we wear them. Some wearables are better known than others.
Now to refer the article, I have to say that I agree with both present challenges. My opinion is that Bill Wasik, the author from Wired, got it right when he connects wearables with those problems connected with or related to the Bluedouche principle. My first thought when I think of people who are wearing these kinds of things and who are well into these new items are those who would be considered nerdy or pretentious.
I accept and I am very aware that all of us are addicted to technology. I do not just take a look at my phone when I am in cafe with my friends because they are boring or uninteresting. I look at it because I am addicted to the notion of having so much technology at my finger tips. I want to be updated all the time, no matter what I am doing I want to know what my friends worldwide are doing, who is playing at my favorite, and what is new in the news, etc.
First and foremost I do not like the term – wearables. I do not think there is a person who could say that he or she is delighted with that name....
