Wearables have been a growing hot topic over the past few years and now getting more attention than ever.

At this intersection of hardware, software and fashion design, lies a new world of wearable products (and platforms) that connect you to a set of untethered, hands-free experiences. This panel discussion event will explore the design challenges and opportunities faced when working on products that you wear to augment your reality or transport you to someone else’s. They’ll look at the different categories from fashion, fitness, sports, health to virtual reality.
