Traceable From Pockets to Eyes

Behind every crime scene there’s a mobile phone with important information that will unlock the mystery. We’re traceable in each and every way.

Future crime scenes may be solved through Smart glasses. Apple recently filed patents for its own high-tech glasses.

Ever since I had the Nike Fuel+ band, wearable technology felt like the next wave of innovation for the big guys like Google and Apple.

Despite all the privacy fears, many of us want to be traced. Our life is a walking expression that others find interesting, especially in peak moments like vacation.

One of the things I tried on my trip to Turkey was sharing images in real-time. I thought about creating a Facebook album and sharing them all in bulk. But the best way to tell an adventure is live instead of after the fact. It’s the seamless journey tracking that makes the Internet connected glasses an appealing device.

I expect Apple or Google to take on the watch market as well. Apple could make some beautiful hyper connected watches that are less about images, video, and media consumption and more about checkins and routes, like Path.

Wearable gadget technology is the wave of the future. We live fragmented in apps today, tomorrow could bring visually operated sharing. Say bye to our thumbs and index fingers.
