Enhancing Personal Area Sensory and Social Communication Through Converging Technologies

Rudy Burger, MIT Media Lab Europe

The next decade will see great strides in personal wearable technologies that enhance people's ability to sense their environment. This sensing will focus on at least two different areas:

a) social sensing, in which we may augment our ability to be aware of people in our immediate vicinity whom we may wish to connect with (or possibly avoid!)

b) environmental sensing, in which we may augment our ability to sense aspects of our environment (for example, the quality of the air we are breathing) that may be hazardous to us but that our normal senses cannot detect
