Hey QS people!
Did you know 46.6% of Chinese people are willing to purchase smartwatches? See the Baidu report here in English and Chinese. Many Chinese manufacturers are already churning out these devices for the domestic market like Shanda and Qihoo. Things are definitely getting more exciting in the QS space!
After a long hiatus, we've finally rounded up some awesome speakers that will talk about the technology and trends behind wearable devices and what you can expect to see in the coming year (See our presenter details below).
Whether you are a QS hobbyist that likes to try out devices and apps for fun or a hacker that wants to learn more about the technology, you should come to this meetup!
