A colleague sent me a link to this post, from Corinna Gardner, curator of product design at the V&A. They have just acquired an ugly, but important piece of wearable technology. As she says:
Whether or not we own a Nike Fuelband or Jawbone UP, or even if they are only a fad, wearable technologies are a reality for thousands of people every day. The WT4000 is the flipside of the extreme efficiency we so enjoy when ordering a book for next day delivery or our groceries selected, packed and delivered to our doorstep.
