Google Announces Android Wear: a Wearable Operating System

Dante D’Orazio at The Verge:

Google is officially getting into wearables. The company has announced Android Wear, a version of the operating system designed specifically for wearable devices. To start with, the system is made for smartwatches, and Google is moving aggressively to make itself the key name in wearables.

This technology has me all hot and cold. The passive notification stuff looks so awesome, but then I see someone talking into their watch on a bus like a total dork.
