Wearable Computing sponsored by O'Reilly Media

We are happy to announce our first ever wearable computing event for software engineers.  This should be a great event and as always networking is encouraged.  

O'Reilly Media is sponsoring pizza and drinks for everyone. 

O'Reilly is also putting on SolidCon 2014 and wants to invite BASE members to attend.  Check out this link if you get a chance:  http://solidcon.com/solid2014  


Speakers

---------------------------

Steve Castellotti, CEO of Puzzlebox

---------------------------

Steve will briefly cover some of the projects, toys, and devices Puzzlebox has modified to be brain-controlled (wheelchairs, helicopters, warehouse cranes, pyrotechnics, etc.), then shift to describing the cutting-edge technologies and techniques scientists and researchers of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) have developed in the lab, which could be applied to wearable computing (especially Meta's Space Glasses and Google Glass).

Valentin Burov, Co-Creator of OrigaMIDI

---------------------------

Valentin is the co-creator of OrigaMIDI, a multi-dimensional MIDI controller and Augmented Reality visualizer that lets you control your electronic performance with printed pattern designs. OrigaMIDI requires no hardware to be worn on the body, just images that you may print or draw on any fashion attire of your choosing, that are then recognized through image processing on a mobile device.
He's done talks and demoed OrigaMIDI in art galleries, tech meetups, and music meetups. Check it out for yourself and download the app demo for free at www.OrigaMIDI.com.

Noor Siddiqui, Co-Founder and CEO of Remedy

---------------------------

Remedy allows a surgeon to see through a nurse's eyes and guide her through treating a patient. We're building a real time video and multimedia platform on Google Glass to give providers faster access to expertise. We're delivering help in medical emergencies- mass casualty incidents, post operative rehab, complicated elderly patients, rapid responses...etc. We think wearables are a chance for technology to allow doctors to spend more time face to face with patients rather than glued to screens.

Bruno Terkaly, Developer Evangelist at Microsoft

---------------------------

Bruno will kickoff and introduce the speakers. In addition, he will introduce the ability for everyone to start experimenting with their own wearable computing devices.

For less than $100 anybody can go and order an Arduino or Raspberry PI. In the case of the Arduino, the hardware consists of an open-source hardware microcontroller fitted a small chip, memory, and storage. The software piece consists of a standard programming language compiler and a boot loader that executes on the microcontroller. You can add expansion boards that plug into the device, hooking up motor controls, GPS, Ethernet, LCD display, sensors, actuators and more.

Bruno Terkaly is a principal developer evangelist at Microsoft. He is a monthly columnist for MSDN magazine and is recognized for his expertise in cloud computing. He is also the author of 6 applications for phone and tablets in the Windows Store. He spends as much time as possible writing code and writing about his experience so that other developers can grow their skill set.

---------------------------

Conrad Wade, Founder of FemtoDuino and Organizer of GDGsf

---------------------------

Conrad Wade is going to briefly speak on his company FemtoDuino and how it is easy to develop your own devices now.  FemtoDuino is the smallest arduino clone, bare bones. A seperate Femtoduino USB, USB to UART adapter, or Arduino is required to load sketches. The femtoduino is perfect for projects where size and/or weight are critical.

Solid 2014 presented by O'Reilly Media

--------------------------- 

Something big is happening at the intersection of software and hardware. O'Reilly Solid brings together the people and businesses accelerating the growth of a software-enhanced, networked physical world.

The programmable world is creating disruptive innovation as profound as the Internet itself. As barriers blur between software and the manufacture of physical things, industries and individuals are scrambling to turn this disruption into opportunity.

    The last part was too lengthy and poorly coordinated. I wish there had been more of a chance to socialize and meet people. That was pretty fun!
