Here is a simple idea and a clever promotion.
I so want a set of these. Wearables certainly have the power to change existing experiences.
The Apple watch was released this week. What are the possibilities with this type of wearable technology. One scenario is explored here.
The textbook is boring. The ideas are easy. Servicescapes are boring. Is there anything worthwhile in this stupid unit. Have a look at this article about Disney. http://www.fastcompany.com/3044283/the-messy-business-of-reinventing-happiness#! Tell me what you think, leave a comment.
