Wristwatch of the Future
A bunch of folks from HP Bristol put together a really fun brainstorm design document: The Wristwatch of the Future, a series of concept sketches and descriptions of possible arm-accessories we could build 10 minutes into the future. Some of my favorites: the Webcam wristwatch (so I can see my cats and house from anywhere), the Landmark Reminders wristwatch, based perhaps on David Allen principles that to-do items belong in places as well as lists, and the Mood wristwatch. Imagine how useful it would be if everyone wore a mood indicator: the next meeting wouldn't require advance notice that so-and-so is in a lousy mood so you'd better not pitch that new idea or tug his/her chain today.
