About this item

Wearable media represent the next stage of media and technology. Divorcing computers from their desks, they are truly mobile, hands-free, intimate, and sit within the paradigm of the ‘Internet of Things’. This book examines wearable media’s social, cultural, and political-economic implications. McStay and Bakir argue that wearable media contribute to the global surveillant assemblage not just mere information, but also corporeal and even emotional data, the social implications of which are just starting to unfold. While interested in topics of ubiquity and mass adoption, they also address the unique characteristics of wearable media—not least the much more intimate ways that technologies engage with people.
