Joanne Lo: 2016 IoT Workshop


Thursday, April 14, 2016
Location: Fisher Conference Center, Arrillaga Alumni Center

"Incognito Wearables: Seamlessly Incorporating Fashion and Function"



Beyond smartwatches and fitness monitors, wearable technology is being incorporated into our lives in more natural and seamless ways. In this talk, we will explore a few possibilities of building wearable technology by augmenting ubiquitous and familiar objects. Moreover, we will examine users' perspectives on information gathering and displays as wearable technology gets increasingly intimate and personal.
