Mobile Monday YYC - Wearable Tech

Wearable Tech is the topic of this month's MoMoYYC. Reserve your spot today! 

  Speaker Lineup - Monday April 7th 2014

Jeff De Boer - Wearable Tech and the Human Experience

Jeff will discuss art directed technology with respect to wearable computing. The biggest issue with wearable tech right now is that the focus is primarily about the technology and not about the human experience. When we apply tech to our person it has the potential to either augment or interfere with our interaction with our environment. Good design limits the interference and seeks to heighten the meaningful human moments in our lives.  

Chris Nieckar, 4iiii Innovations - The Controversy of Wearable Tech

4iiii Innovations Inc. specializes in using the latest technology to address the demands of athletes, increasing their performance and safety. Marketing Manager Chris Nieckar will be discussing invisible wearables, the wristable trend, and Cochrane being the epicenter of wearables in Canada.

Derek Rucki and Stefan Redeta, T-Link Golf

TLink is a small, lightweight, bluetooth device that provides golfers with their front, middle, and back of the green yardages from a GPS app on your smartphone. Our entire device is designed to be as simple, convenient, and comfortable for golfers as possible allowing golfers to either wear it on their wrist or clip it anywhere they would like.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
