Overview:

Wearable computing has a natural home in the world of gaming. Nintendo's Wii controller already has motion-sensors and it will not be long before more interactive gear, including clothing, become part of a video-game player's apparatus. Gaming in the future will be dominated by wearable devices that users can wear from head to foot.

There will also be head pieces, vests, sleeves, gloves among others. While early virtual reality attempts such as the Nintendo's Virtual Boy failed to change the gaming world, wearable technologies with augmented reality will. The drivers of growth will be the expansion of the broadband industry, efficient hardware compatibility and the development of wireless gaming. Of course, continuing increase in disposable incomes will be instrumental in propelling growth.
