Fuel drives pretty much everything in our world. Cars need gasoline. Televisions need electricity. Even our bodies need food and oxygen to keep us going. Without fuel, things break down and cease to function. So what does this have to do with wearable technology? There’s a major driving force that is motivating the recent trend of wearable technology. The force – or fuel, if you will – behind it is none other than cloud computing. Without the advances in cloud computing, wearable technology wouldn’t have the chance to progress or proliferate. Even though it’s seen only recent growth, already around 18% of people in the United States and the United Kingdom use wearable technology,( Tweet This ) according to research from Rackspace . As cloud computing continues to advance and become more convenient and usable, expect wearable technology to grow even more popular at the office as well as at home. So what is cloud computing exactly? Though it has numerous applications, cloud computing basically means computing on the Internet. Connecting to the cloud represents connecting to the Internet, which nowadays is made easier through the advances in wireless technology.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
