Focus of the discussion was the actual potential wearables bear for the future and who really benefits from their use. Therefore, the benefits of wearables such as Google Glass turning us into „super humans“ as well as the dark side of this featuristic developement considering privacy issues and the social isolation of the users were conversed. Both the usage in our daily private life and the benefits in our professional life were topics of the discussion. In this context Industry 4.0 as well as the reaction of employees to the new technologies were important questions to be examined.
