Special Edition: Design of Wearable Devices

Currently the topic of much debate, wearable devices represent a new era in our relationship with technology.

We’ve invited two speakers that have launched their own wearable products to share their insights about what to consider when designing a wearable experience.

As mentioned at the last meetup, we are starting to collect a small fee to support upkeep of the group, website costs, and awesome events in the future (we will run it at zero profit). You will need to pay $2 via paypal in order to RSVP (this also prevents no-shows). If you do not have a paypal account, contact someone from the leadership team and we'll work something out.

** Note: Still trying to determine if we will have access to our new, larger boardroom. If you are on the wait list, stay tuned as I may increase the attendance **

    Hi UX Design therapy meetuparoonies. Unfortunately I'm going to have to skip out on tonight's meeting. Heading to Japan tomorrow for 3 months and have many things that still need organizing. Sad to miss it. I have been to many meet ups but this one is the most engaging and passionate about what they do, and I have learned so many things (not least being the true function of UX and it's importance in the design/production process). Thanks for everything and if all goes to plan I'll see you at a summer meetup I hope

    Oh, what a shame, the other design seminar on the SAME topic is happening on the SAME night (what are the chances of THAT?!?!) lol. I guess great minds think alike!

    I hope this is not too much to ask (forgive me if it is, but I thought I'd ask, just in case...), is there any way possible we could postpone this meetup until the following week? I'd really like to attend both! That way we will ALL benefit!

      Hi Priscilla. Unfortunately this was the only night that the the two guest speakers were available to do the talk.

    Hey folks, the larger boardroom will still be under construction during the meetup, meaning I can't increase the attendance size just yet. If you are on the fence or are unable to attend, please update your RSVP.

    This is the same night as the UX Book Club meetup :(

    • Fraser M.

      Understood, I wish I could be at the book club too! :(

      This was the only night we could arrange to have both speakers available to present.

      Thanks for the post, i was on my way there tonight, was very confused as my calendar posted it for tonight!

    Quick question. The email said Wednesday, March 12th but now that I registered the event states Tuesday, March 25th. Which date is correct?

    February 26, 2014

    • Fraser M.

      Sorry about the confusion the event is on March 25th.

      February 26, 2014

    • Karen W.

      Thanks for clarifying Fraser. Looks like the night of the 25th is the same as VanUE so I might have to change my RSVP. Bummer.
