    Thank you all for attending last night's meetup and making it a productive, fun event. Based on feedback from the attendees, we plan to have another Meetup in two months.

    Meantime, I would love to hear ideas and comments on how we can improve the Meetup.

    Thanks
    Hamid

    PS: Many thanks to Plug and Play, and Neda, for graciously providing the venue.

    Hi all,

    We're students who just graduated from UPenn, we're building a wearable device that tracks if you're getting drowsy and helps you stay alert, and we just launched on Kickstarter this morning! Check it out at this link and help support us to make Vigo a reality! http://kck.st/Jz1Y75­ It's a pity we missed last meetup; hope to see you all at the next one!

    Thanks for organizing the meetup. It was very informative and great to see so many new startups working with various ideas on wearable technologies. I was thinking of more IoT based idea but this meetup has changed my thinking to incorporate wearable tech!! I excel in disciplined engineering processes and can help companies in the hardware/software space to establish best known practices while being Agile. It is obvious that startups don't want to invest time in documenting, processes etc. but they are necessary for every business to succeed. I see that the shortcuts can cost and I would like to help resolve that problem.

    If any of the startups would like to discuss with me on establishing processes, documentation standard, reliability, predictability, risk analysis and program management please contact me. I am looking to consult with startups solve problems in development, execution or manufacturing.

      I'd be interested to facilitate a discussion about hiring and managing EE & ME & Mfg partners for small mobile electronics, if that would appeal?

    Hello,

    Is there any possibility to show presentation remotely? I'm outside US, but I'm focused on the development of wearable embedded electronics,i.e. motion, posture, vital sign, tracking, low power WiFi/BTLE, Qi Wireles Charging, NFC...

    Regards,
    William

      Hi William, Best would be if you send us a copy of your presentation first as one of us will probably have to present for you while you are on the phone to comment or answer questions. BTW, the meeting is from 7PM PST which is 4am in Continental Europe if that's where you are.

    Thank you all for your interest. As my note says, I am looking for entrepreneurs who are interested in developing fitness/sports/health monitoring products. Those who want to make a better or different Fitbit or Fuel Band. My company Sensoplex.com works with such entrepreneurs to help them setup their company, raise money, and develop their product. If we get enough interested parties, I will suggest a date, perhaps in November, and a place in the Palo Alto/Menlo Park area.

    Please let me know what you think.
