Acer are working on wearable computing, preparing it for 2014

Acer to release wearable technology next year

Google aren't the only ones working on wearable computing, with Acer's smartphone boss, ST Liew, saying that the company will release their first wearable device sometime in 2014 during an interview with Pocket-Lint.

Liew also noted that wearable technology has huge potential for companies, which right now should be obvious to most. The Acer exec says that the industry hasn't exploded yet, but when it does it would be a multi-billion dollar market. I agree, and I think wearable technology is going to be the new smart device market. Smartphones will slowly fade away as they can't really get thinner or faster, or introduce anything that will make you go "wow, I want that", yet wearable computing (watches, eyewear like Glass from Google) are going to be the next big thing.
