  • The Wearable Future: Moving beyond the Hype; the search for the Holy Grail and Practical Use Cases

    Now that wearables are all the craze, how to make sense of all the hype? Wearable startups are popping up everywhere with many innovative ways to address people's lifestyles and routines in an attempt to augment our lives. More and more wearable applications and proof-of-concepts are beginning to emerge, but not yet widely ubiquitous around the world.  What will it take to take wearables to the next level? Wearable technologies should solve problems and enhance our lives rather than hinder it--the challenge is to find that spark that will make wearables more appealing, relevant and useful to the population.

    Distinguished speakers and panelists of visionaries and technologists will talk about the first generation of wearable devices, share their personal experiences and challenges they have faced, as well as give us a glimpse into what the next generation of wearables will look like."
