Apple and Google working on wearable stuff

The New York Times Bits reports that Apple and Google have recently started working on projects that will become wearable computers, based on the smartphone, which is becoming the hub for our information sharing and gathering.

In Google’s secret Google X labs, researchers are working on peripherals that - when attached to your clothing or body — would communicate information back to an Android smartphone.

At Apple, one idea being discussed is a curved-glass iPod that would wrap around the wrist; people could communicate with the device using Siri, the company’s artificial intelligence software.
