Wearing your computer on your sleeve
December 19, 2011
Over the last year, Apple and Google have secretly begun working on projects that will become wearable computers, based on the smartphone, which is becoming the hub for our information sharing and gathering, New York Times Bits reports.
In Google’s secret Google X labs, researchers are working on peripherals that — when attached to your clothing or body — would communicate information back to an Android smartphone.
At Apple, one idea being discussed is a curved-glass iPod that would wrap around the wrist; people could communicate with the device using Siri, the company’s artificial intelligence software.
