Computational Fashion - The next generation of wearable technology

10.15 | NYC | Sabine Seymour

Wearable technologies are the next great leap for the integration of human and machine.

We now have glasses to augment our vision and wristwatches to monitor our health. Sabine will bring insight into what these dynamic interfaces mean for us today, and tomorrow.
