If you are thinking WTH Apple, wait. We aren’t just talking about a fancy shmancy thing to wear on your wrist that tells time. Apple wouldn’t be so simple. What if your watch could be Siri enabled? Wearable technology could be the next huge trend as we evole, so is this the next big thing? Check out what New York Times has uncovered.
In its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., Apple is experimenting with wristwatch-like devices made of curved glass, according to people familiar with the company’s explorations, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because they are not allowed to publicly discuss unreleased products. Such a watch would operate on Apple’s iOS platform, two people said, and stand apart from competitors based on the company’s understanding of how such glass can curve around the human body.
Sure, people have taken shuffles and made watches out of them, but this iWatch thing could be the real deal. Keyword, could. There are rumors about all kinds of things the mighty Apple is creating. Remember the rumors of the iTV? Where is that Apple? And while I love my iPhone 5 – there were tons of rumored features that never happened!
