The Future Is ‘Wearables, Drivables, Flyables, Scannables’ #makerbusiness

Mary Meeker: The Future Is ‘Wearables, Drivables, Flyables, Scannables’.

Smartphone and tablets are so 2013. The future of computing is all about “wearables, drivables, flyables and scannables,” says Internet analyst Mary Meeker.

Meeker released the latest version of her Internet trends report Wednesday at AllThingsD’s D11 conference. The 117-page opus is packed with predictions.

Among them: The third wave of technology will come in such forms as eyewear (Google Glass), watches, GPS-enabled drones, self-driving cars and more sophisticated uses of barcode-like QR codes. Apple CEO Tim Cook made some of those same points Tuesday, saying he was “incredibly interested” in devices on wearable technology, especially (hint, hint?) those that one might sport on one’s wrist.

Meeker, a partner with the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, is a former Morgan Stanley analyst known as the “Queen of the Net” for her prescient calls ahead of the 2000 dot-com bust.
