Apple working on wearable technology prototypes

Apple and Google are reportedly working on wearable tech products with Apple to kick things off with a curved glass, wrist mountable iPod

 

Having led the way in a number of sectors already Apple looks set to pioneer a new industry with the Cupertino based tech giant working on wearable technology devices, new reports have revealed.

The new reports, which come via the New York Time’s Nick Bilton, the man largely responsible for the Apple iTV rumours, suggest Apple is currently working on a variety of wearable tech from wrist mounted iPods to smartphone syncing information displays.

Citing “a person with knowledge of the company’s plans,” the New York Times has claimed “a very small group of Apple employees have been conceptualising and even prototyping some wearable devices.”

“Apple has also experimented with prototype products that could relay information back to the iPhone,” the report continued. “These conceptual products could also display information on other Apple devices, like an iPod, which Apple is already encouraging us to wear on our wrists by selling Nanos with watch faces.”

Expanding the possibilities of a host of current technologies into a new and exciting form the NYT has suggested Apple’s wearable tech plans could incorporate the likes of Siri, the currently iPhone 4S locked voice commanded personal assistant.

“One idea being discussed is a curved-glass iPod that would wrap around the wrist; people could communicate with the device using Siri, the company’s artificial intelligence software.”

Whilst these reports are far from confirmed, Apple, along with the likes of Google, could soon be making key technologies more engrained with user’s lives.
