When Will Wearables Go Mainstream? (video) #WearableWednesday

When Will Wearables Go Mainstream? via Fashioning Technology:

Wearable devices are on the rise, with some analysts predicting a market worth billions by 2015.

From health and wellness to media, retail, education, and enterprise—companies from diverse industries may be headed for major disruption. Yet despite the buzz that Google Glass and the Nike FuelBand have created, these emerging products remain largely niche. So what will it take to make the average Joe want to wear a tiny computer?
