Apple decided to make a watch and only then set out to discover what it might be good for (besides, you know, displaying the time). “There was a sense that technology was going to move onto the body,” says Alan Dye, who runs Apple’s human interface group. “We felt like the natural place, the place that had historical relevance and significance, was the wrist.”

@robertthegrey Would you want one of these. I don't mean 'Of course I'd take the $17k version as a gift.' I've tended to be a bit further from the the bleeding edge on Apple devices. When I first heart about this I thought about that I'm so glad I don't need a watch anymore with my iPhone. Why would I want another one. Seems a bit like Google Glass. On the other hand this might end up being different. It all depends on the filtering abilities and the interface. We're certainly going to see tons of stories on the Apple Watch interface and design elements. And what a joy it's going to be designing for desktop, tablet and now watch.
