Welcome! Episode #16: Ian Chalmersby Welcome! by Karim Kanji
Ian Chalmers is the Creative Director of Pivot Design Group and an avid collector of watches, mobile phones, wearables and a pre-historic hammer.
Great episode! I love hearing Ian speak.
My two cents on wearables:- They are not simple devices and are trying to be too many things right now. Not really simplifying the core problem. (vs. Ian's questionably ancient hammer)- Microphones are interchangeable and will work for decades to come because there are standards for interconnection & use, or have simple adapters to get it working on disparate systems. Wearables is still too much in flux and it's primarily a hardware play. Where is the system(s) to interconnect the data coming out of these devices so we can consume information better? Too many proprietary formats right now.
Keep it up KK.
