Wearable Tech Lightning Talks/Roundtable

Let's meet up discuss:

• The current state of wearable technology (Google Glass, Lilypad/FLORA/Arduino, etc.)

• The future of wearable tech (what people want to see, how it could be possible)

• Anybody's efforts in the wearable tech space - what worked, what didn't, how to pursue it.

Please, if you are working on a wearable tech project, bring it to show off! Or if you'd like to put together some sort of short, "lightning talk"-style presentation, definitely do!

I will have both an example of my current wearable tech project, as well as a small talk envisioning how wearable tech could be used to interact with the urban environment.

(Thanks to Leslie Birch for asking the Hacktory to host the event!)

    I wish I could come, but I've gotta bust my ass to print t-shirts for my just-launched t-shirt biz. I hope to be at the next event, when things have calmed down a bit.

    Nelly, I can bring some wearable technology with me this evening, just some fun stuff that i built for Halloween, plus some demo pieces that i'm using for a new project using GPS and Motion.

    I would be happy to do a quick stand-up review.

      Do it! The group would love to see what you are up to. And I want to try it on!

    Everyone, Lloyd Emelle will be joining us tomorrow! He is a Google Glass explorer, and will be giving a lightning talk / discussing his experience.

    Hi Chris. Definitely! Our first panel had a bit of wearable tech in it, but it would be great to do something a bit less formal. How about some time in November?

    • Christopher N.

      Hi Nelly, someone apparently added the December 4th date - and it appears to work! The Hacktory has graciously agreed to provide a space for people to meet and talk about wearable technology.

      Hey! I added the date but the location just looped up. Nice! See you tomorrow night.

  • Christopher N.

    So does anyone have any ideas for a lightning talk they might want to give?
