The Computers of the Future
There’s the Echo Frames, which are wireless glasses that retail for $179.99.
They also have a microphone that sits on the frame and sends audio directly to your ears.
The world’s largest e-commerce company also introduced the Echo Buds, which are wireless earbuds that sell for $129.99.
But by far the most spy-like gadget is the Echo Loop, a ring that allows the wearer to connect to Alexa with the touch of a button. Husbands can call their wives with their wedding ring finger for $129.99.
They also allow us to interact faster with machines, as you don’t need to take a phone out of your pocket and then go through the usual routine of entering a password or staring at the phone until it recognizes your face.
If you think of something for a to-do list or need to send a text message, that interaction can be launched with a tap on the ring or by using the “Alexa” wake word.
The Next Step
In the next few years, we will wear our computers in the form of glasses, earbuds or a ring.
After that, the next step would be to control our computers with our brains.
Incredibly enough, Facebook just paid between $500 million and $1 billion for CTRL-labs, a company that makes a wristband that reads electrical signals from your spinal cord.
Anyone who uses this technology is either network or a blind fool.
