Here are a number of wearable computer devices you might, or might not have, heard about.
A number of new wearable computers become mainstream in 2013. In 2014, you can expect even more wearable computers to make their way into the spotlight. This should result in more discussion on the Internet of Things (IoT) as it relates to the connectivity of devices. One thing all of the wearable computers have in common is that there were developers writing the underlying code to make them work. In this slide show, I present a number of wearable computer that you can get today as well as a few you might not have seen. I expect to see even more ideas come to light in 2014. Do you know of other interesting wearables?
