The future of multitasking?

I recently observed this man walking along a San Francisco sidewalk while lifting a dumbell. He was doing reps, alternating sides, just like one would do in a gym.

If people’s general level of busyness continues to increase, will sights like this be more common? What else will people start to do while moving between points? What will the culture accept and what will it reject?
