Motorola ramping up a ‘world-class wearables design group,’

It is no big surprise that Motorola was interested in crazy wearable technology — like vitamin authentication and electronic tattoos — but now it seems the Google-owned company is preparing to actually design and make electronics you can attach to yourself. A job posting for a “Senior Director of Industrial Design,” the company lays out a goal: the “ideal candidate” will help create “a new world-class wearables design group within Motorola,” and manage day-to-day operations of the group.

“The wearable design team will lead the establishment of our brand in the massive competitive and growing space of wearable connected products. The company’s looking for an expert with over 15 years of experience who can hit the ground running and architect a design plan for leadership in the area of wearable technologies.”

After Google glass, we wonder why would also be independently pursuing wearable tech now?
