Wearable technology advances

Disney’s MagicBands truly are a great example of wearable technology.

The stylish rubber wristband connects you to a vast and powerful system of sensors in the park and has enough battery to last two years. It begins as soon as you book your ticket online and pick your favourite rides. Disney’s server crunches your preferences and then, as if by magic, your wristband arrives in the mail etched with your name. The MagicBand dispenses of all the hassles of paper, you can check into your hotel, access the park, swipe onto rides, and make payments by pre-linking your credit card & pre-order food at the restaurant. This incredible piece of wearable technology is designed to anticipate your every desire. Will the world at large ever become akin to Disney World, loaded with sensors attuned to our every move?
