Remember the MPMan? It was one of the first MP3 players. It blazed trails, but in hindsight it really wasn’t all that good.
I think this is about where we are with wearables today. Fitbit, GalaxyGear, Pebble; there’s a lot of great design that’s gone into some of these products, but they’ll soon all seem as dorky as the MPMan does today.
When I was a kid MIDI greeting cards were state-of-the-art. Now dancing & singing cards are filling that space. Soon, $8 birthday cards will have Pebble-class guts.
