Simon Roberts, formerly senior design anthropologist at Intel, will describe a set of lenses that helps us understand the different speed at which social and cultural conventions and technology develop and what that means for how we respond to wearables. Zoe Romano, founder of Makerfaire Rome, an associate at arduino, and founder of openwear.org talked about Wearables, DIY and Empowerment. Kuniharu Takei, one of MIT’s Top Innovators Under 35, talked about his innovations in nano-materials including current work on a smart bandage that will be able to sense and respond to glucose level, skin temperature and more. Tomas Diez, the creator of Smart Citizen Kit will talked about wearables in the city.” “Projects presented over the two days ranged widely in scale and context; from devices worn on the body, such as Dominic Wilcox’s GPS shoes, to large, interactive spaces and locations, as seen in the Hello Lamp Post project, presented by Tom Armitage – all highlighting the fact that wearable technology has evolved and expanded far beyond geeky gadgetry, into innovative clothing that is really interconnected with the internet of things.”
