Abstract

This thesis analyses the human-computer symbiosis through the role of technological advancements and developments on wearable technologies. It embraces the mutual relationship between men and the machine in a theoretical aspect and tries to narrate the correlation with a wearable sensor glove application. The interactivity of the current wearable technologies and human case profiles are touched upon. The main objective is to observe and uncouple the transitional stages of mobile media that carries today’s human being to the prospective post-human.
