Wearable Technology: The edge of the BOOM!

Join Dr David Rowlands, Deputy Director of Griffith's Sports and Biomedical Engineering Lab, SABEL, to discuss the emergence of wearable technology over the last 10 years, from the realm of elite athletes to the everyday consumer. In a wide ranging discussion we will delve into how wearable technology works and how the shrinking of sensors and the coupling of smart devices has set the scene for an explosion of technologies in the next five years.

Lastly Dr Rowlands will introduce our special guest Judd Armstrong, CEO of Jaybird, to present SABEL's involvement with the new leading edge activity tracker the Jaybird Reign to be launched in the US in late October. Ranking #8 just behind Go-Pro for fastest growing consumer brand over $20 million in revenue, Jaybird is a leading edge technology company and Judd is perfectly situated to give his industry perspective on the future of wearable technology.
