Lend Me Your Ears

Is it time to say goodbye to handsets and literally lodge your virtual assistant inside your ear? The future of smartphones may be “hearable.” Silicon Valley giants Amazon, Apple and Google are angling to make our mobile technology entirely voice-commandable. But there’s more: Hearables can tell where your head is pointed; it could be fitted with heart-rate monitors that measure stress, analyze spatial brain activity and essentially read your mind.

Like it or not, the in-ear revolution is “about allowing your virtual assistant to whisper in customers’ ears throughout the day, while also enhancing their health and well-being,” says Satjiv Chahil, a former Apple marketing executive.
