New ‘blow your socks off’ wearables coming to I/O 2015

ATAP-session

From what we’re seeing so far, it appears that I/O 2015 is shaping up to be a good time. Not only will we see the announcement of Android M, but it looks like Google will be showcasing something else as well. That’s right, coming from Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) division, will be new wearables that are geared to “blow your socks off.”

On May 29, Google will be having an I/O session with a description of “Badass and beautiful. Tech and human. Love and work. ATAP.” It will take place at 9 a.m. that day and last for about 75 minutes. In that session we’ll see Project Ara, a new Spotlight story filmed in 360 degrees — complete with 3D sound, and other wearables.

“We mean this more literally than you might think,” Google adds. “Our goal: break the tension between the ever-shrinking screen sizes necessary to make electronics wearable and our ability to have rich interactions with them. Why can’t you have both?”

We’re not sure just what they mean, but one thing is for certain, I/O 2015 is shaping up to be one hell of an event.
