Mobile devices don’t just stop at smartphones, wearables have also started to capture headlines. Richard explains what wearable technology is and shares some real life examples.
Richard’s previous career was in teaching as a secondary school mathematics teacher. When he got an iPhone 4 (back in 2010) that was a game changer for him. Previously he had taken pride in always having an old school Nokia but when the iPhone arrived with its ability to watch videos, browse websites and play console quality games as well as play music from his iPod, he realised that he wanted to be involved in the digital mobility industry. Richard now works in mobility and specifically with connected vehicles. How are people going to pay for fuel in the future? How will this change if all cars are electric? Will they even own their own vehicle? He has found it awesome helping companies answer these questions.
