It seems like yesterday when we went gaga over watches with calculator capabilities. Over the years, the possibility of actually having wearable technology is left for science fiction to be made possible.
Well, that’s until wearable technology was born. Will this mean wearable web design is within our grasp?
Nowadays, you can make calls, record videos, check your health and even buy a cup of espresso using a watch. (Talk about improvement, huh?) You can also do that now using glasses.
