The Third Transformation is the advent of mobile phones - we are currently living in the 3rd. The Fourth Transformation is when we put away the phones and wear glasses that will do EVERYTHING the phone does and so much more. It opens the door to viewing the real world with an enhanced overlay of information and or entertainment. Of course this will change almost everything as we know it.
