I think we are at the beginning of a wearable technology boom. Technology is increases rapidly everyday, and we are beginning to implement technology into everyday items. The Apple Watch is a great example of an accessory that does much more than tell time. Some people use it for business, like emails, phone calls, meetings, and messaging. While others use it more for leisure, and activity, like measuring fitness, golf gps, weather, and calendar.

Nike has been making huge strides in the wearable tech market. The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is an example of experimental shoe technology that is paving the way for new breakthroughs. The shoes auto lace, and can adjust the tension with movement. It can stay tight for a basketball player on the court, and when the player sits, it can release the tension allowing the foot to relax.

The design is exciting for wearable technology, and it allows the user to be more efficient and simplify things.
