A talk given to Worthing Digital group on the rainy night of October 22cnd 2013.
It is an introductory level talk on wearable computing devices and technology. The aim is to raise awareness of this increasingly important topic.
It examines the history of wearable device technology and provides some case studies of current products (The Lume Collection, Pebble Smartwatch, Fitbit, Google Glass).
It then considers how these devices and technologies may be linked together into a coherent, ultimately participating in the "device cloud" that is known as the Internet of Things.
It speculates as to the the social and cultural impact of the mass adoption of wearable technology. It explores this through a scenario called the Internet of Bling.
A video of the presentation session will be made available on the Worthing Digital website in the near future.
