Talk Abstract:  Wearable tech and computing are natural evolutions of the smartphone technology. Technology is becoming more personal—where it could adapt to the natural ways we communicate, learn, and create. For instance, travelers no longer have to remove a phone from a pocket to retrieve information on boarding passes, gate updates, or reservation information because wearable tech devices are expected to change the fundamentals of human machine interaction. Wearable technologies of all sorts will transform the marketplace and impact elements of a tourist’s destination experience. Tourism venues and other firms need to realign their business practices and software developers will play a critical role. Wear Geared is a development partner with a leading manufacturer of smart glasses, Epson. The next-generation Moverio BT-200 smart glasses by Epson will change how people experience the world around them and are setting the new standard in Augmented Reality (AR). Our team at Wear Geared is growing quickly as we explore the full potential of an AR application for our vertical market clients in the travel sector.
