Toronto Wearables Meetup 34

tools for making wearable electronics
Wednesday, January 18, 2017 - 7:00pm

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

  • Hot Feet - Bijun Chen, Masha Karimi, Katie Micak

Green Exchange

Green Exchange
Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 4:00am to Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 4:00am

In conjunction with Waste Reduction Week, OCAD's Sustainability Task Force invites OCAD students, faculty and staff to exchange or recycle outdated electronics.

Many people have the knowledge, but do not have the means to properly recycle technology. Over the course of two days, the OCAD community can bring in outdated electronics and either leave it for another person to reuse or to have it properly recycled.

Drop off old mobile phones, computers and related items (including peripherals like keyboards, mice, cables, monitors, printers, PDAs etc.), old TVs*, VCRs or other entertainment devices, as well as old batteries and printer cartridges. What can be reused will be salvaged by those that want it, while non-salvageable will be collected by Greentec for proper dismantlement, salvage, recycling and disposal.

Please note that all personal data should be erased from devices prior to drop off.

*Older wooden-boxed televisions cannot be accepted.

Come by to pick up information on living a more sustainable lifestyle, and your chance to win green prizes or giveaways!

IT Service and Campus Life are actively seeking modest sponsorships from vendors and other partners to cover associated costs for the event.

The Green Exchange is organized by OCAD’s Sustainability Task Force, and generously supported by the Office the of President, Office of the Vice-President, Finance & Administration, OCADSU, IT Services, the Service Bureau, Campus Life & Career Services, AV & Imaging Services, Human Resources, Admissions & Recruitment, Green Palette, Xerox, Bullfrog Power, Zerofootprint, IBM, Loblaws, Mountain Equipment Co-op, Aboveground Art Supplies and Toronto Hydro.
