Wearing the Future: Industry

The Wearable Computing Center at Georgia Tech in collaboration with the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) will host a series of exciting presentations this fall to complement the exhibition On You: Wearing Technology

Wearing the Future is a series of five panel discussions by thought leaders, exploring the impact of wearable technology across various domains. The sessions aim to provoke thought about the future of technology and how society will adapt and include wearable technology to drive better and newer outcomes. The panels and presentations will include academic and research experts and thought leaders from industry including trend forecasters, athletes, designers, manufacturers and health professionals.

Industry - August 27th, 2PM

Head mounted displays have been used in industry since the ‘90s for mobile on site repair and access to large amounts of locally stored information. With the advent of improved network connections and better understanding of mobile interactions these devices now have the technology and opportunity to make a huge impact in the way we manufacture. Assembly line personnel can work through checklists and order picking more affectively. Specialized mechanics can access remote experts and have real time conversations about parts through the cloud. How will even more improvements in wearable technology affect industry and manufacturing?
