Overview: The next consumer mega trend of mobile "wearables" is imminent, and is sure to spawn a new chapter of mobile entertainment and mass market games. Mind Pirate, a wearable technology company based in Menlo Park, is responding to this trend by delivering cutting-edge game technology that fully exploits the unique and underutilized features of current smartphones and tablets, as well as next-generation mobile wearable devices, like Google Glass.
