Wearables: Hype or multi-billion dollar opportunity
 

Wearable computing is emerging as the type of significant technology shift that has the potential to drive innovation in the way personal computing did in the 1980s or the Internet did in the last decade or mobile computing and tablets are doing currently. While technology cycles have generally lasted 10 years, wearables are coming on stronger and faster than is typical. The change is noteworthy because major technology cycles often support an order of magnitude growth in users and devices. Wearable technology has the potential to significantly change every aspect of our connected life, whether it is communication, entertainment, health & wellness or education. Not only does this technology have support of big corporations such as Google, Apple, Samsung, Ford and BMW Labs, a host of startups are charting a new course with innovative applications in this space.

Come listen to an exciting conversation with investors, startups and corporate incubators on what this hype is all about.
