Nothing has really changed in mobile devices experience since the first iPhone, as Sergey Brin said on his TED talk when he introduced google glass “You are just rubbing this featureless piece of glass. There isn’t anything to feel” and he is right, but regardless google glass and other wearable technologies, we (as humans) need better ways to interact with our devices!
