Technology is advancing faster than ever before with new products being invented all the time which could radically change the way that we interact with computers in the future. This week we are going to be talking about the idea of technology that you can wear, something which has appeared in the media a lot this year with the inventions of devices such as Google Glass. As we can see from the BBC video about video headsets and wearable tech, there is more competition than ever before. The video also talks about some of the potential problems with this technology in its current form.
With more and more technology in our lives, it is a relevant point to ask whether it has improved them or not. While some people are advocates, others believe that the influence these devices have on us has been negative, impacting on the way that we socialise. These are the main ideas that we will be talking about this week in class, so with that in mind, have a look at the video and have your thoughts ready!
