In a previous post, I commended on the proliferation of technology into the everyday lives. Some of you may still remember early mobile phones such as the Nokia 3210, however in the fifteen years or so that have passed since, mobile phone development has resulted in smart phones that combine many devices into one. For example, a mobile phone, camera, diary and address book. To some of you, this may sound surreal, however once upon a time each feature was provided by a different device.

Google proposed to revolutionise the wearable technology market by introducing the Google Glass.

IC Optical could contribute to shaping the market and industry by working in partnership companies such as Google to create futuristic devices combining vision impairment correction and the functionality of a smartphone.

Google have reportedly cancelled their Glass programme, the question remains, what next?
