The Wall Street Journal’s All Things Digital Conference that wrapped up on Thursday focused on the trends of wearable technology and ubiquitous sensors.
It started on the first night when Apple CEO Tim Cook, who was wearing a Nike+ Fuelband on stage, said that he thinks that wearables “could be a profound area for technology.”
Even Disney and the San Francisco 49ers are big on wearable technology. Tom Staggs who runs Disney’s theme parks, showed off Disney’s MagicBand, a wrist-strap that serves as your admissions ticket, electronic wallet and park ID. You can use it to arrange an experience within the park or — as an option — to let a Disney character automatically know your child’s name.
