    Ahaha wonderful.

    I'm taking bets on the first company to patent smart boob implants.

    Sony wants to play a major role? Get workin' on Pip-Boys or Omnitools, then!

    I hate this gimmick-over-utility the wearable tech route is going. I'd much rather things be suitable for purpose but not obtrusive. Wrist-mounted computers, eyewear (such as Google Glass), or a small article of clothing such as gloves. I remember seeing quite some time ago (a year+) about coats with MP3 players in them. But that's going backwards because an MP3 player is already small and portable.

    Grumble grumble.
