Let's meet and discuss wearable technologies and how they are being used

This is the 2nd meetup of Wearables Sydney.

On the agenda is:

Ben Moir from Sydney-based wearable startup "Wearable Experiments" (@wearableX) will be chatting about "Tech off your clothes: Naked Truths of Wearables" and exploring the question:

"From inconspicuous bracelets which keep track of your fitness levels to clothing that can display your most recent Twitter status, the question is no longer whether users will accept this integrated technology,where does the line between fashion, usability and taste fall?"

On the back of the massive announcement last week that Facebook has acquired Oculus VR for $2B Rob Manson (@nambor) will introduce what will no doubt be some lively (and polarised) debate about this and what impacts it will have on developers, the wearables, AR & VR communities and widespread consumer adoption of these moving forward.

We'll also have Google Glass for people who didn't get a chance last month to have a try and get a feel for what they offer.

If any of you would like to do a lightning talk (5-10 minutes) on a wearables project you're working on at the next meetup, shoot us a message.
