Cabe, I believe the FLORA came out four months ago but don't quote me. Thanks for suggesting the feature article. I look forward in doing it. I got a couple of wearable concepts sketched out and will chose one to develop. I'll definitely keep you posted.

Four months is relatively new. I am a big fan of technology in fashion. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

This rush to create products to solve minimalist problems seems to be great portal into bankruptsy.  Using RF networks to eliminate the need for unsighly wires or for folks who cannot plug the green plug into the green socket, will make life a bit easier for the dumbed down consumer.  But those wireless speakers will either plow through a lot of batteries or will still have a power cord running around the room to the nearest outlet which is never where you need it.  :-)

I don't get the trend towards the virtual dashboard.  In an aircraft the glass cockpit has sufficient redundancy, pilot and co-pilot displays.  But putting virtually all of a vehicle's entertainment, climate control, safety alerts into one LCD panel is a waiting single point of failure.

And if that isn't foolish enough,  a large touch screen replacement for tactile mechanical controls is the road to automotive accident hell.  Drivers spend little enough time engaged with what's out in front on the road without major distractions.  The virtual touchscreen dashboard may someday have its place when vehicles can drive themselves autonomously.  Till then, please do not make it more difficult to keep eyes on the road.

I agree.  I saw a lot of TIDSU (Technology In Desperate Search of a Use) in those slides, like the voice command feature in my Honda Pilot that I've never used.  I would like to have that wearable HD camera in slide 1.  I can think of many uses, like while I'm flying.
