Wigs as a sign of intelligence.

Could artificial wigs make us smarter?

Sony thinks so.

I am joined by tom giles.

They could not possibly mean wigs.

You can use feathers just in time for thanksgiving, human hair, corsair, you name it.

There are a lot of different ways you can play this thing.

Is this completely ridiculous?

Is this a natural progression?

We laughed when we saw people walking around with google glasses at the start.

Some people still do.

It is everywhere now and it will only become more and more common.

It is a little funny and odd to think about, but down the road, it is going to weave itself into a lot of areas.

That is what sony is trying to do.

What do we know about the actual plan?

It does not mean it will happen anytime soon.

Wearable computing is here to stay.

Sony is trying to be proactive.

They have talked about smartphones.

They have talked about smartphones peaking in 2015. at some point, it you will get saturation.

What is the next big thing?

What is the next big thing?

We keep waiting for that apple tv, right?

There are things coming down the pike.

Juniper is talking about a $19 billion market.

That may be a bit big, but nevertheless, there will be a lot of interest.

We talk about this stuff all the time, and now we are wearing it more and more often.

Does sony have any wearable products on the market?

They do have a watch right now.

You are seeing in more and more.

Google, apple.

Samsung is in there.

To you why -- thank you.
