This final meetup of the 2013-2014 academic year will feature a series of OCADU wearable tech projects from the Imagination Catalyst and the Social Body Lab. Projects include Loretta Faveri’s SoMo , a wireless wearable sensor board developed for dancers; Robert Tu’s MeU, a smartphone-controlled, flexible LED display; Mike Vaughan’s Lynxio, a knee brace that transmits wireless data on corrective body positioning to a physiotherapist; and a series of conceptual wearable projects developed by the research team in OCAD U’s Social Body Lab over the past year: a hood that deploys itself with a shoulder shrug; a wearable body compass that warms in the direction of “home”; and expansive shoulder pads actuated by muscle flexion.

"While honey bees get most of the credit, a considerable amount of agricultural pollination is performed by wild bees. In Toronto, backyard fruits and vegetables are pollinated mostly by wild bees. So, it is a good thing that there are over 350 species living within the GTA" - Bees of Toronto: A Guide to their Remarkable World, City of Toronto
