Wearable Technology

 

In the future, are we all cyborgs? It’s not that far fetched of a question as technology continues to modify the world around us, creating a tech infrastructure that is directly connected to our bodies. When we think of Wearable Tech, the first products that come to mind are the Fitbit and the Apple Watch, but we are beginning to see technology being incorporated into the very fabric of the things we wear. From web connected interactive glasses, to chips imbedded in our clothing and bodies, wearable technology is opening up new possibilities of connectivity and expression in our expanding digital world. The purpose of this panel is to explore how the Internet of Things is making the leap from external devices like laptops and cellphones to integrate with our physical selves at a breakneck speed, and what we may become as a result.
