Re: Wearables beyond wrists
@briandnewby,

Scary to think of but it is in the horizon. I guess I could say I hope I'm not part of the experiments but who truly knows..?

Re: Wearables beyond wrists
That's kind of my point--if our wearables monitor what's inside, particularly if there are pumps and such to keep us going.

For that matter, there probably is a whole creepy line for the automated self.  We're always finding out that things we thought were normal are abnormal, so think of all of the things inside our bodies that can make us feel inadequate.

There's a whole new marketing universe out there.  On the positive side, maybe we'll finally get to see what a free radical or a toxin look like.

@briandnewby,

Inside the body? That scares me a little. I don't want to visit the doctor & get told I need a chip in my head to monitor my BP. Then again, people do already survive due to pacemakers so who knows?

Wearables beyond wrists
Great presentation!

I wonder, though, how wearables can be categorized beyond watches and fitness trackers.  What other wearables?  And, inside or outside of the body?  On one hand, that seems obvous, but to the point that mobile devices track devices inside the body, the line blurs.

As always, I continue to predict that we will, some day, see a baseball player picked off second because he was on a phone of some sort and not paying attention.
