(Ash) is Bio-Computational researcher@day working on bio-markers (publications*) & CTO@night of technology companies (patents*). His frequent code-a-thon wins have gone on to become published Apps (iOS & Android*). As a thought leader in wearable/mobile development he is an enthusiastic teacher / speaker helping to promote the ecosystem (fashion* & technology*). But what he would really like is to get a major sponsor in all three phases of water. (Snowboarding* [solid], Surfing* [liquid] & Kiteboarding* [vapor])

Technology and Fashion awaken the Soul of the Shoe

Level :
Beginner
Date :
5:00 PM Saturday
Room :
RF-141
Interested : (41) - Registered : (-)

This talk will cover wearables in regards to the integration of fashion and technology. The first part will be an exploration of the fashion industry, as a system for designing, producing and distributing clothing and accessories, followed by "insider hints" highlighting how to collaborate with a fashion company. The second part will cover the advanced technologies used to build wearable fashion. An overview of MEMS (motion, position, environmental and capture) sensors and cloud messaging / wireless connectivity with code samples for iOS & Android. We will provide a review of the current market and a detailed evaluation of Google wearables (Glass, Project Jacquard & Soli). This will be contrasted to using a smart phone (Apple M7 chip) as a wearable device. We will provide a real world example of placing Bluetooth LE connected MEMS devices into a shoe which will lead to some surprising capabilities. The talk will culminate by showing how these two industries co-evolve and the different forms these collaborations can take. We will discuss how successful companies are designing, producing and marketing wearables, and analyze the current and potential customer. We will explore an exciting idea of the internet of caring things: connected objects and accessories to improve health and provide safety. The section will end by discussing visionaries, forecasting future trends and the role of media (the importance of early adopters and opinion leaders in the wearable ecosystem).
