Description

Join us on Oct 30 at The Future of Wearables where we dig into what wearable technologies can and will be doing for us in the new future.

Wearable technologies is one of the fastest growing sectors of the modern age. With it, we have seen a surge in popularity of new metrics such as the quantified self, giving us a better understanding of how we work as humans. The realization of what wearables can do for us has seen many new start ups and innovators enter the field and bringing with them new ways with which we can connect to ourselves and others.

But what does all this new information at play mean for consumers, as well as creators? How do we decipher this information?

After the panel, let's mingle and network over some pizza and drinks!
