The Ultimate Wearables: Interactive Implants - Tony Fernandes

Published on

Wearables are a quickly evolving part of the technology landscape and are beginning to add value to people's lives. The idea of having controllable implants to enhance human performance or add convenience has to date been the stuff of science fiction. The thought of using technology in this way immediately brings up ethical, privacy, and health issues. However, this type of implant already exists and is in use today. [COMPANY NAME] partnered with [COMPANY NAME] to design medical implants that live in the body but can be controlled from outside the body using a simple remote control to address perceptions of pain and to stop involuntary tremors. [COMPANY NAME] will present its research and design journey and the impact it had on the researchers/designers, the patients, and the implication of this type of technology on the future of UX.
