Technology Trends and iPal
Until now, computers have been reactive: they help you if you go to them. The next-generation of computers will be proactive: they will be with you; they will sense and analyze what you are doing and when appropriate, they will make predictions and suggestions to make your life easier or they will do the tasks that we consider repetitive, tedious and inconvenient. In order for a computer to be proactive, it has to be wearable. If it’s wearable, it has to be multi-purpose. If it’s multi-purpose, it has to “see”.
iPal is a proactive wearable computer. It is intelligent. iPal sees what your eyes see and what your eyes do, and you can control it with eye gestures. It knows to keep track of only the things your eyes pay attention to, and relies on the processing power of computers to track and make sense of that information. In this way, iPal is a pal, a next generation personal assistant.
