UPDATE: Re-scheduling to Wednesday May 14, 2014

Hi Everyone - apologies for the late notice but Rob and I are flu-ridden so we need to reschedule the meetup to next Wednesday, same time, same place, same agenda.

Hope to see you all there!

We had a great first Wearables Canberra meetup - thanks to everyone who came along and engaged in the discussion, including Kristin Milton from Geoscience Australia who provided interesting insights into her experience of wearing Google Glass for 24 hours, both socially and in the workplace.

The next meetup is Wednesday May 14 so come along.

Ruth Ellison (@ruthellison) will be leading a discussion on smart watches and talking about her perceptions of wearing a Pebble watch, how it’s influenced her behaviour and how she sees the smart watch market evolving. From the last meet up a lot of you also had smart watches, so it would be great to get an insight into your thoughts around this too.

On the back of the massive recent announcement 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 Glass again for anyone that isn’t get a chance to try it out last meetup.

If you have a specific wearables related project you're working on and would like to present it or to share your experience using specific wearable devices you own and use in your everyday life at one of the upcoming meetups, let us know.

A big thanks to Entry29 for providing the venue too!
