Today at Giga OM two former WIMM Labs directors, Ted Ladd and Lori Malm, shared what they learned making wearable computing devices for the smart watch startup that was bought up by the a year ago.
Wearable apps are not immersive. They should be designed to keep you at play. Content is measured against a new value: glanceability.
