Progress in wearable technologies for monitoring is driven by the same factors that were behind the transition from desktop computing and communication tools to portable devices providing processing and ubiquitous connectivity. These drivers include substantive changes in key social and economic factors. This transition is fuelled by the enormous technical advances in microelectronics and communication technologies as well as the ongoing process of miniaturization. With the coming commercial introduction and widespread use of wearable Augmented Reality (AR), there will be a need for new policies and regulations for their use. These policies go beyond the obvious and extend into many areas of end-user behavior and usage conditions.
