The Evolution of a Wearable
In the world of ubiquitous (AKA “seamless” or “invisible”) computing, electronic devices blend into our daily lives, providing all of the benefit and none of the hassle. Steve Jobs referred to this as “soul”. But whatever you call it, engineers and designers know that this is much more difficult than merely creating functionality. Emerging technologies are making this more feasible than ever, so awareness of current and near-future advances is critical. Come listen to the Founders and one of the lead designers of Gadgettronix as they discuss the challenges associated with developing a wearable tech device for consumer markets. The panel will talk about software platform selection, Bluetooth connectivity, MEMS, energy harvesting, incorporating fashion, and more!
