With an impressive line-up of speakers we will be seeking to challenge assumptions and lay out the opportunities in ‘Fashion Technology’. This event will firstly address the importance and implications of the technology and the engineering behind the product. It will then explore the true potential of these future devices – desirable apparel and accessories - which provide a range of interactivity solutions with the digital, wireless and on-line world.
This Future Devices SIG event will draw on experts from many different fields and seek to answer key questions facing the industry such as:
What is fashion tech?
What do fashion-conscious tech-savvy consumers want?
What design factors are critical to success in this emergent space?
What materials are available, which allow the embedding of electronics?
How do we avoid the risk of the tech industry making wearable appliances rather than fashionable technology?
This exciting one-day event will combine presentations and participatory workshop sessions to ensure that delegates have every opportunity to extend their learning by working together in small teams. They will also be able to apply insights and rapidly prototype possible future designs in a fun and engaging way. Register now to avoid disappointment.
