Wearable Tech Will Shift From Novelty To Norm In 5 Years. My fascination with wearable tech mirrors my fascination with the first personal computers in the Eighties. I saw immediately the great impact these devices would have on the practice of law, and it appears that my first impulse was correct. I feel the same way about wearables, and they are already enhancing my workdays. Many futurists predict that, by 2025, wearables will be on most of us, just as most of us now carry a smartphone. I will go one step further; although, I will likely not live to see it. By 2075, most of us will have implants with great computer power, and will be enhanced by that power. Whether for good or ill, no one can know. But, it will certainly be interesting. This feels a lot like the Eighties and Nineties to me, a time when I carried a refrigerator sized projector around the state demonstrating this "new thing" called then the World Wide Web. We live in interesting times.
