The problem of (and with) wearable technology and privacy

Published on May 28, 2013 by

very interesting topic. Also, read the comments in the article! (a study in itself, I’d say). The problem of wearable technology is that, when it becomes hidden/ merges with in another archetype, such as a pair of glasses, it becomes intransparent. Where a handycam is recognizeable as a camera thus triggers a certain etiqutee surrounding it, Google glasses and similar things pose a new problem, especially with out notions of publicness and how to behave. (personally, I think the google galsses will be a flop because of the strong archetype that is a pair of glasses). Anyways, much to say about this, hovwere, I will save that for my thesis… Meanwhile, check the link (via nytimes)
