Wearable computing is dumb. Nobody is going to wear a drat computer. Instead the big thing will be proper synchronization of an operating system across multiple devices. Perhaps such as a smart watch will control appliances which could eliminate the need for separate GUIs. There won't be smart phones as such, instead barely visible in-ear pieces for phone calls and really thin flexible screens for things that require it, both of which are supplied with data from the watch via bluetooth. In conjunction these could be used to control all kinds of devices. The important thing here is to remember that it's ridiculous to think that people will suddenly completely rip out their walls because they want to live in some kind of house of the loving future so poo poo needs to be able to be seemlessly compatible, hence proper synchronisation. Also in a perfect world apps would be seamlessly integrated into the OS.

I know you people aren't big on topics anymore but do you have any Notions of the Future?

In what way is this not wearable computing? You are literally describing wearing a small computer on your wrist instead of carrying around a smart phone.

that isn't much of a stretch to pull off compared to what we have right now, it'll just take more active uptime on our devices (and thus battery power)

btw I think you may be interested in those old videos if you're interested in futurism/environment computing

they are of course wildly optimistic and we won't be able to pull off even 1/4 of the stuff they show, but it's a start to think about. some dude nerdier than i will probably quote this post and laugh at me for linking those videos since they've been debunked months ago or something

our credit cards will be attached to our phones -> phones will become transparent and bendable -> phone/wallet/personalcomputer will be implanted into our arms

literally fulfilling a Revelations prophecy that will spark a fundamentalist christian uprising and war

from the aftermath we will form a new society that will finally have unrestrained progress until we are so enhanced with computers that we will live forever and have lots of butt sex

Oh, yeah I've seen the 'Day made of glass' before, but it was neat to see it again - when watching these things I try to keep in mind some of the people I know and how they would exist in relation to them - I think most predictions about the future fail to take into account that people aren't really that eager to completely change their habits. I just tried to make a reasonable guess about how technology might evolve in the next ten years or so because anything beyond that may as well be science fiction. So better integration with not every device having a seperate GUI and kind of a step away from thing you hold in your hand. Of course even the earpiece thing might me far fetched because people with bluetooth headsets are basically indistinguishable from maniacs.

MANIFESTO OF FUTURISM

We want to sing the love of danger, the habit of energy and rashness.
The essential elements of our poetry will be courage, audacity and revolt.
Literature has up to now magnified pensive immobility, ecstasy and slumber. We want to exalt movements of aggression, feverish sleeplessness, the double march, the perilous leap, the slap and the blow with the fist.
We declare that the splendor of the world has been enriched by a new beauty: the beauty of speed. A racing automobile with its bonnet adorned with great tubes like serpents with explosive breath ... a roaring motor car which seems to run on machine-gun fire, is more beautiful than the Victory of Samothrace.
We want to sing the man at the wheel, the ideal axis of which crosses the earth, itself hurled along its orbit.
The poet must spend himself with warmth, glamour and prodigality to increase the enthusiastic fervor of the primordial elements.
Beauty exists only in struggle. There is no masterpiece that has not an aggressive character. Poetry must be a violent assault on the forces of the unknown, to force them to bow before man.
We are on the extreme promontory of the centuries! What is the use of looking behind at the moment when we must open the mysterious shutters of the impossible? Time and Space died yesterday. We are already living in the absolute, since we have already created eternal, omnipresent speed.
We want to glorify war the only cure for the world militarism, patriotism, the destructive gesture of the anarchists, the beautiful ideas which kill, and contempt for woman.
We want to demolish museums and libraries, fight morality, feminism and all opportunist and utilitarian cowardice.
We will sing of the great crowds agitated by work, pleasure and revolt; the multi-colored and polyphonic surf of revolutions in modern capitals: the nocturnal vibration of the arsenals and the workshops beneath their violent electric moons: the gluttonous railway stations devouring smoking serpents; factories suspended from the clouds by the thread of their smoke; bridges with the leap of gymnasts flung across the diabolic cutlery of sunny rivers: adventurous steamers sniffing the horizon; great-breasted locomotives, puffing on the rails like enormous steel horses with long tubes for bridle, and the gliding flight of aeroplanes whose propeller sounds like the flapping of a flag and the applause of enthusiastic crowds.
