This is the vision of Italy's ADR Studio, but I believe it is just "around the corner" for all of us.
Fusing the design of an iPod Shuffle/Nano with the functionality of an iTouch/iPhone and voila, the new iWatch.
Clock, calendar, calculator, and weather--that's nice, but frankly it's child's play. Think more in terms of:
- Stock quotes
- Social networking
- Music, videos, and games
- 300,000 App Store downloads (and growing)
Unload some smartphone "baggage" from your belt and bag and integrate on your wrist.
There is a reason this concept keeps coming back in ever cooler ways--it makes sense functionally and feels right ergonomically.
I envision this working one day with virtual display and controls, so that physical "size doesn't matter."
We will walk on the moon again or some other distant planets, but we will always be connected to each other and not just in spirit, but with our iWatches
"Slide to unlock" now, please!
