"There is a problem with the battery, and the size is still large, which spoils the fashionability.However, in anticipation of the emergence of a large market for wearable computers to replace smartphones in the near future, the major semiconductor and fashion industries are paying a lot of attention," he explained.Mr. Sugimoto talked about MIRAMA, a wearable OS for consumers developed by his company, the development process and future prospects.

The evolution of computers is rapid, and the losers and winners in the industry are quickly being replaced," he said, urging the students in the audience to "start your own business while you are still in school.When you run a company, you make a lot of contacts, and there are many cases where people will lend you a helping hand just because you are young.Even if you fail, you won't have much to lose, and the fact that you took on such a challenge as a student will be highly regarded, so you won't have trouble finding a job.There are great opportunities in the computer industry.There is a good chance of great success," he stressed.
