205 Richmond St. West, Third Floor, Room 301

The theme this month is “How We Make” - a look at the diverse ways in which people prototype wearable tech. Because wearable tech sits at the intersection of many fields and because it is a relatively new area there are not yet set practices and standards for how wearables are produced. Methods can range from hand sewn conductive thread circuits to mass produced printed circuit boards encased in injection molded plastic, and everything in between.

This session of TWM will use a show-and-tell format as a way to instigate discussion about how we as a community make wearables. All are welcome to bring completed or work-in-progress prototypes. Let us know if you want us to add your project to the Eventbrite listing so people willl know you’re coming. We’re still working out the details but it’ll likely be circle / round table style, though there will be a projector if you need to show anything on screen.

We look forward to seeing how YOU make!

Confirmed Show & Tellers:

  • Fluorescence - Ania Medrek, Samaa Ahmed, Sara Gazzaz

  • Quipucamayoc - Boris Kourtoukov
