    Default Apple Reportedly Working on Siri Enabled Wearable Computers



    A report from the New York Times claims Apple is working on Siri-reliant wearable computers.

    Source’s close to the matter told the NYT a “very small group of Apple employees” are working on Siri-reliant wearable prototypes that users would wear as part of their everyday clothing. The previous sentence brings to mind images of a Skynet takeover initiated by Siri-enabled tie clips, eyeglasses, shoes and watches.

    The wearable devices would utilize a bevy of sensors to constantly send information to and from the user’s smartphone. Somehow the prospect of my entire wardrobe knowing everything about me and being able to transmit it to my phone is a little scary considering the Carrier IQ debacle. But, the advantages of Siri calling me a “tub-o-lard” in the morning after moving my belt buckle out a notch could have some positive side effects.

    All of these Siri-enabled television and wearable computer rumors seem to indicate Apple has lofty visions for the future of the still-in-beta digital assistant. Siri, despite her current flaws, looks like she might just be going through that awkward high school phase every trophy wife endures.

    This is just insane. Technology is scary - and awesome! I just recently read something online about these contact lenses that can receive your emails... nuts! I'll post the link if I can find it.

    "Mirror Mirror on the wall" would be replaced with. "Siri, am I the fairest of them all?" Response: "Not if you're wearing that shirt with those shoes, they absolutely DO NOT match..."

    It can't see us or know what we're wearing but instead be enabled on our hands and not have the need to look at our phones or hold them. Easily be something hands free

    A lot of them are used for things like mathematical modelling of climate change, objects in space moving around another etc.

    I don't know why and how these news come out, and i don't believe them much, because of what happened in the iphone 4S when people claimed of a larger size and better antenna and so many other things but that didn't work at all, And the iphone 4S turned out to be something different that what was claimed, that is why I find it hard to believe that any such thing will be released in future by Apple inc or not?

    "Siri, despite her current flaws, looks like she might just be going through that awkward high school phase every trophy wife endures."

    I can definitely see some advantages to this!!
    Can't wait to see more along these thoughts...

    Maybe that's what Steve was involved in beyond the iPhone5. I can just see it: iPhone 6! Coming to a wrist near you.
