It seems as though every company is trying to create some sort of wearable tech whether it's with a device, fabric, or accessory to make our lives easier. Here at Tech in Motion we think these new innovations are fascinating so we've decided to invite some local wearable tech companies to come and showcase their products.
Come grab after work drinks and appetizers at The Baseball Tavern for a night of networking and tech talk with the Boston Tech Community!
Because this event is happening close to Halloween we are inviting (and encouraging) guests to outfit themselves in their own wearable tech. This could be anything from a beeper to a smart watch to the Nintendo Power Glove. We think it'll be a fun way to show off what you have and spark some interesting conversations!
Be one of the first 40 to arrive and receive a free drink ticket for beer or wine!

Ben Cooper, Co-founder/CEO of Sensible Baby:
Sensible Baby is a wearable technology company for infants and toddlers that specializes in sleep monitoring devices. Their first product, the Smart One, is a safe and easy to use passive monitoring solution that only sends alerts to a parents' smart device when it senses an unsafe change in the baby's sleeping environment. The company was founded in March 2013 and has experienced quite an ascent to where they are today. It all started at a Startup Weekend event in Boston, which they later won. They then competed and became finalists in the 2013 Harvard Business School New Venture Competition, finalist in the 2013 MassChallenge Global Event, and winners of the $100k Founder.org program.
