Wearables, projectors offer displays for the post-screen world

In my last column, I discussed two products that are taking previous input constraints off the table by putting them on a table — or, really, any surface, for that matter. Those technologies are predicated in part by the idea that our computing experiences won’t always be tied to a glowing rectangle attracting our gaze.

Smart glasses could kill smartphones in the next five years

I realize the irony of publishing this in the week that Intel announced it was pulling the plug on its smart glasses project Vaunt (pictured) but I think that the smartphone’s days are numbered, and smart glasses are going to be the thing that kills it.  If you’re anything like me, you break out in a cold sweat whenever your phone’s battery drops below 10%.

I’m finally winning the race against anxiety

This is the third time I’ve tried to write this piece – I’m desperate to say something after the wonderful effect of my article on mental health and running last year, but every time I try, it feels forced and artificial.

Lately, I’ve been hearing some people refer to the incoming wave of labor-replacing, process-enhancing automation as a “digital workforce,” which suggests some type of side-by-side pairing with the human workforce, just as contingent workforce gets paired with full-time workforce. Photo: Honda Whether you or not you like these new semantics, the constellation of technologies that are birthing the digital workforce are a force to be harnessed, and if applied with forethought and entrepreneurial spirit, may open up new horizons for…
