Will ‘smart clothes’ power our mobiles in the future?

“Wearable devices will soon transform our entire bodies into power sources”, a former Google boss will tell an annual digital media conference at Birmingham City University next month.

Former Google director Frank Golding will join BBC Future Media director Ralph Rivera and radio futurologist James Cridland at Rethink Media on Wednesday 18 March to discuss the technologies set to shape the digital media landscape.

“Video will be displayed on literally everything soon”, predicts Golding, who previously spent eight years working at ESPN, the largest sports media network in the United States.

“TV sets of the future will be screenless frames through which holograms appear. We already have audio induction but I’m envisioning power induction next. By wearing a certain type of device, our entire bodies will be power sources which allow us to power very small devices remotely.”

Hosted by The Gadget Show’s Jason Bradbury, other speakers at this year’s event include vlogging sensations Lily Pebbles and Anna Gardner, who both draw in over 1 million video views to their YouTube channels each month.

Rahul Chakkara, director of digital at Talk Talk, will also address the issue of future digital trends.
