Wearable Futures

Wearable Futures

Wearable Futures is a large two-day event held in London at the impressive Ravensbourne college, next to the O2 dome. With 50 speakers and 300 attendees it was a busy event running dual presentation tracks in parallel for most of each day.

I had the opportunity to present Light Log as part of their wearable health panel, along with speakers Duncan Fitzimons, Kuniharu Takei, Ivor Williams, and chair Nic Howell. Kuniharu had a particularly leading edge area presentation covering smart bandages, where he is researching and prototyping smart materials that act as joint sensor, display, and are capable of releasing drug treatments when needed (diabetes being one of the early target conditions being investigated).

The Light Log Wearable Futures Presentation had a 10min slot in the panels discussion, followed by audience and panel member question and answers. The discussion panel’s time seemed to race past very quickly – it would have been great to have longer for audience questions – so thanks to all those of you who came up and caught me after the discussion panel to talk about Light Log!
