"There is a battery problem, and the size is still too large, which spoils the fashionability," he said.However, in anticipation of the emergence of a large market for wearable computers to replace smartphones in the near future, major semiconductor and fashion industries are paying a great deal of attention," he explained.He talked about MIRAMA, a consumer wearable OS developed by Sugimoto's company, including how it was developed and its future prospects.

He also noted that "computers evolve quickly, and the weak (losers) and strong (winners) in the industry are quickly replaced," and urged the students in the audience to "definitely start your own business while you are still a student.When you run a company, you make a lot of contacts, and in many cases, just because you are young, they are willing to help you.Even if you fail, you have little to lose, and you will be recognized for having taken on such a challenge while you were a student, and you will have no trouble finding a job.Great opportunities lie ahead in the computer industry.There is a good chance of great success," he stressed.
