Wearable tech: It's not what you wear, it's how you wear it

After a few years of frantic deployment of wearables, the hype has cooled and the reality is: most of those devices didn't tap the very real potential of wearable tech. Why do so many wearables suck, and how can we do better? Author and strategist Liza Kindred’s 20-year career in fashion and technology has explored both the challenges and benefits of (literally) weaving tech into our lives. She’ll offer a host of practical examples that illustrate an eye-opening framework of values to guide us in how we make and use new technology, with wearables as the lens.
