In 1988 when Mark Weiser first articulated the concept of Ubiquitous Computing, I wonder if he had sensors and wearables in mind? Ubiquitous computing, sometimes called the age of calm technology refers to the era where technology is pervasive or omni-present in our lives, but not dominant. Instead, ubiquitous computing is about technology that recedes to the background. This is where “wearables” will rise!

My hometown, Milan, is known as the Italian city of business and, even more so for fashion. That’s why it may be difficult to see around someone wearing a cardboard mask while having a Virtual Reality (VR) experience: more likely, trendy people will instead wear a pair of Google glass. But now, VR has become affordable for any budget: with just a few dollars you can transform your smartphone to a VR device and experience a total immersion in virtual and augmented reality.

Today, I gave my 2nd presentation, How To Disrupt Legal Disruptors, via the Wolters Kluwer GPO Presents series on the topic: wearables and legal services. Calling it a challenge is putting it mildly because I’m very skeptical. Is it possible to dwarf legal products down to a 1.26 inch screen? It would certainly not be a legal research product which deserves nothing but the biggest surface to comfortably exercise, right? Read further >

Coming back from holiday season, a colleague of mine was wearing a brand new gear watch he received from Santa. I received a GPS watch from my brother who is a professor of Latin and Greek literature, and not really a fan of technology. A few days ago, on the subway in Milan, I saw the first person wearing Google Glass. They are here and closer than we think: devices and tools that create a new reality. Read further >
