And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

His music. My inspiration. His ballerina. His inspiration.

I watch them dance to “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room”. I see their limbs extend and defy gravity in perfect lines, their backs arch and contour in perfect U shapes. I watch her leap across the floor and roll into his arms. Their arms, their fingers, the turn of their heads, their chemistry — every single moment of their movement delights me, frightens me, excites me and inspires me.

Oh, how I I want to inspire. How I want to make you feel what I feel when I”m inspired. I want to make your heart race, your skin tingle, your blood rush and your mind wander. I want to make you want to do something, to be somebody. I want to make you want to let go. I want to make you want to throw your life away and do something exquisite.

But I have nothing. No limbs to extend, no voice to soar, no eyes to paint, no fingers to play. All I have are my words. Raw, broken, incomplete, disjointed. Tumbling out of my body with no consequence. I want to draw what I see, paint what I feel. And watch the magic that is you. Taking my words and making them mean something that is uniquely you.

These words, they’re all I own. They’re all I know.

Flappy Bird. Flappy. Fucking. Bird.

About a week ago, I was perusing the App Store as I normally do. Much to my surprise, I saw a new king atop the free app charts: Flappy Bird. This was odd to me because I usually feel like I’m paying enough attention to see an app’s rise in one way or…

PSFK Future Of Wearable Tech Report
 
 PSFK Future Of Wearable Tech Report  from PSFK

The Future of Wearable Tech report in collaboration with iQ by intel identifies 10 trends and three major themes that point to the evolving form and function of wearable devices and their influence on the way we live, work and socialize. In our Connected Intimacy theme, we explore how wearables are revolutionizing the way we communicate information about ourselves and maintain relationships over any distance. With the Tailored Ecosystem theme, we look at how these devices are personalizing the world around us and adapting to our ever-changing needs. While the Co-Evolved Possibilities theme considers the potential and promise of a closer union between humans and technology and its impacts on our natural abilities. Within these themes, we take an in-depth look at each of the key trends, bringing them to life with best-in-class examples and connecting the dots with takeaways to help spark thinking and discussion. As you click through the following slides, we hope you find inspiration and innovation that you can leverage and share within your own organization. For more information about the report visit: http://www.psfk.com/publishing/future-of-wearable-tech
