This Article explores the growing development of wearables and immersive technology within the field of dispute resolution. It provides a hypothetical example of how these existing technologies could be used in combination with data gathering, analytics, and artificial intelligence to transform the justice system. The Article then explores the age-old limitations and biases that exist within the justice system and suggests the use of the newest technology could lessen the impact of these limitations and biases. Finally, the Article suggests a marriage of technology, dispute resolution, and the crowd that may produce outcomes that should be supported by the judiciary by making use of the conceptual framework of polycentric governance. However, this can only occur if safeguards are put in place to ensure an ethical, fair, just resolution of the issue for all parties concerned.
