Friends, barely a week goes by without something popping up on my news feed about how some new wearable device or app, or app-enabled device, is going to be a ‘disruptive technology’ that will destroy traditional models of healthcare.
And here’s the thing: the potential of wearable technology is absolutely massive, and sooner or later someone is going to use it to create a product that will change the social world. It will be like the first MP3 player; an innovation that will start entirely new trends in technology.
But none of the current generation of wearables will do this.
Because they are not trends.
They are fads.
And if you look at the “evidence” that they use to support their claims you will see that they are all talking bullshit.
