Wearable technology: Is it cool? To be honest, your answer is irrelevant to Earth, unless you are a youth and not a geezer. And Forbes has already reported that 71 percent of official youths (ages 16 to 24) are stoked about the thought of having wearable technology. This can come in the form of tech-infused eyeglasses, tech-infused watches, or tech-infused wristbands. All former dweeb items that are apparently no longer dweeb items because they have new and exciting functions and features and a vote of confidence from the youths.
