As the ex-editor of the Technology section of the Telegraph and one of the few journalists to have interviewed Apple’s Jonny Ive, Richmond has produced a little gem on ‘wearables’, the technology that we will all eventually use.
Citing watches, Google Glass and even future subcutaneous wearables, Computerised You has interviews with global influencers and mavens and is a quick read, not least because it’s so well-written. The content therein may alarm some readers as Richmond appears to have no problem with the forthcoming merger of man and machine, but in many respects this book be used as a reference for the future.
It may be more than 25 years before the Singularity is upon us, but it’s probably best to prepare for it now (especially if you have children). This book is a very useful asset in doing exactly that.
