Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Wearable Tech

Wearable technology, as defined, is an article of clothing or accessory that incorporates computer and advanced electronic technologies into the device. While it sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, products like Google glass have been gaining a lot of hype and attention in the media lately.

The philosophy behind wearable tech is quite simple. It's that technology is becoming so incorporated into our daily lives that we don't even notice it anymore - it's passive. You don't have to log your exercise anymore, or set an alarm clock, or charge your phone before going out... or even take out your phone to take a picture! Read on to learn about these products and more.
