This month: Major announcements for the WWTO community + our annual tech writers recap of CES and a special presentation by 3Glasses VR and SOMO by Sonic Wear

CES just wrapped up earlier this month are continuing our tradition to host a panel of tech journalists post-event to recap what they saw and help us wade through the wearable tech trends which will dominate 2016.

Plus we have a special presentation of 3Glasses D2 Vanguard Edition, the first ever virtual reality headset with a revolutionary 2K resolution display with VP, Philip Kong video conferencing in from China.

And Toronto-based SonicWear joins us on stage with a live dance performance using SOMO, a wireless, wearable motion-tracking device that turns movement into music.

In the demo area go hands-on with demos of 3Glasses VR, MiaoMiao Games' Whisper Dungeon Google Cardboard game, SOMO wireless motion-tracking device for dancers by Sonic Wear, Connected DJ by Connected Labs and the Muse Monitor app. Just added: Able Bionics will also join the expo to feature the latest in wearable robotic exoskeletons.

Plus we are featuring a "Pitch a Tech Writer" table in the expo where you will have one-on-one access to four tech writers who write for MobileSyrup, BetaKit, Tom's Hardware, Electric Runway, Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, and more. The table will be open from 8:30-10PM.
