WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY?

In the past few years, wearable technology has increased massively in popularity, spearheaded by popular gadgets like the Apple Watch, Galaxy Watch and more. TechRound asked our Chief Strategic Officer, Mike Wyrley-Birch, to join other experts to share their views.


Mike went onto say:


“While wearables have become popular for use in exercise and entertainment, wearable tech has barely scratched the surface when it comes to potential for training and education – particularly in the workplace. The way we work and learn has changed drastically over the last 5 years, with hybrid working now much more common. However, the technology we use hasn’t caught up yet. VR and other immersive technologies have the potential to bridge that gap and create endless possibilities for learning and working.

“From school to the workplace, wearable immersive technology has the chance to bring learning to life in more practical ways, allowing users to interact and gain skills in more real-life scenarios. While immersive technology may still be in its infancy, we can already see an evolution, with an estimated 80% growth of XR usage within education over the last 5 years – with no signs of slowing. In the modern workplace environment, tools like Microsoft Mesh can help a team feel genuine togetherness and immersed, especially now that hybrid working is here to stay.

“Being able to step into a virtual reality to socialise with your colleagues – or practice an immersive and lifelike training experience before applying it in person – can help accelerate professional development and help team members feel more engaged with the company. As far as I am concerned, we are about to see a revolution in the way teams and individuals interact and learn – all thanks to wearable immersive technology.” This is the link for full article - https://techround.co.uk/tech/expert-comment-what-is-the-future-of-wearable-technology/
