Wearables: Is this the Next Generation or just a packet release? @scobleizer

There is a buzz of excitement in the wearables landscape at the moment as Google announce their next round for the Explorer Program.

Glass & the program is designed for people who want to get involved early and help shape the future of Glass. There are currently a number devices helping make up and control the Internet of Things; from fitness bands and anklet baby monitors, to smartwatches and other devices using Android Were

Expanding little by little. Too little too late?

Google Glass reviews were good, but is it hard to explain, unless you part with $1,500 for a prototype product? And the earliest advocates, like Robert Scoble, have turned away from it dues to lack of updates / transparency about its roadmap.

Initial concerns of it not being a fashion item are understandable. Have they done it this time? They are experimenting with different ways of bringing new Explorers into the program. You can sign up here and they will let you know if a spot opens up. 

Ok, so in conclusion, have a look at the website, sign up & ignore Robert Scobles descension. Then go ahead and shell out your $1,500 for this second stab at the computer on your face. I’m gonna stay here and Watch for the next big thing. Is it the right time to buy into wearables!?
