When asked why now is the time for the connected home and the “Internet of Things”, many refer to the smartphone revolution. But we think this is just the beginning and predict that within the next five years, wearables will be as important to the connected home as smartphones are today. The speed of innovation in the Internet of Things is at an all-time high with constant new products and devices coming to market, though we have yet to see which will break through to bring these technologies mainstream. Products that blend utility, design, beauty, and simplicity – this is the formula that will revolutionize the way we live and captivate the consumer. In this discussion, technology, design, and fashion experts will discuss how and why wearables will become mainstream and lead the way in this next epoch of the web.
