AgNerds: Smart Watches, Holograms and the Future of Mobile Technology

Microsoft's Hololens
Microsoft’s Hololens

Want to spot an uber-Apple lover? Check wrists. The Apple watch began shipping about two weeks ago, and for those willing to part with a starting price of $500 (CDN),  the status symbol offers wearers the ability to send everything from a simple text message to their heart beat, from their wrist (apparently provided there are no wrist tattoos interfering with information transfer).

While Apple isn’t the first to launch a connected watch, the rapid rate of innovation is moving on from touch screens and total connectivity, to virtual reality in a big way, as Microsoft begins hyping Hololens.

In this episode of AgNerds, RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney and Agnition’s Peter Gredig chat about the Apple’s new smart watches, Shaun’s Galaxy Gear 2, and Microsoft’s Hololens.
