The Convergence Story of Wearable Tech on @techcrunch #WearableWednesday
Brian Ballard wrote an article for TechCrunch
breaking down the last 40 years of technology development and how it relates to wearables and IoT:
The interrelated trends around miniaturization and portability, wireless communications, power-efficient computing and advanced display technologies have come together to create the smart devices of today. The patriarch of these devices, the smartphone, is 15 years in, and smart-wearables are now poised to drive the next great wave of innovation. This wave is shaped by the technologies that came before it.
It’s worth revisiting how we got here to get a sense of where we’re going next.
