It knows your vital signs. It tells you when and how much water you need to drink, and it monitors your sleeping patterns.

No, it is not a doctor or nurse. It’s your wearable device that tracks your lifestyle and every move for the day.

Patrick Tucker, author of “The Naked Future: What Happens In a World That Anticipates Your are Every Move?,” stated: “In 2008, the number of Internet-connected devices first outnumbered the human population, and they have been growing far faster than have we.”

The wearable world products are growing by leaps and bounds. There were 13 billion Internet-connected devices made in 2013, according to Cisco, and 50 billion in 2020 — items such as smartbands, phone apps, sensors, and implants that go into the body.

On June 3-4, the GLAZEDcon 2014 conference “The Dawn of the Wearable Economy” will detail how man becomes part machine by using devices that will alert you about what’s going in your body — or even calculate a business strategy.

In the new world of wearables, GLAZEDcon will bring together inspiring and innovative executives in wearable technology from government, gaming, health and fitness, and lifestyle industries.

This year Glazedcon 2014 is pulling out all the stops by gathering as guest speakers investors, CEOs, developers, and journalists: Quinn Li of Qualcomm Venture, Stephanie Palmeri of SoftTech VC, Tim Chang of the Mayfield Fund, Adam Adelman of Mighty Cast, Brian Wong of Kiip, Melissa Thompson of TalkSession, and Dylan Tweney of VentureBeat, among others. And I will serve as moderator.

We anticipate 1,500 attendees for workshops, and there will ge some free giveaways. This event was created by Redg Snodgrass, co-founder and CEO of Wearable World, and Kyle Ellicott, co-founder and chief operations officer of Wearable World and creative director of TechZulu.
