The Hacktory is hosting a meeting with Fashion|Tech|PHL meetup to discuss wearable technology. The discussion will focus on the following:
• The current state of wearable technology (Google Glass, Lilypad/FLORA/Arduino, etc.)
• The future of wearable tech (what people want to see, how it could be possible)
• Anybody’s efforts in the wearable tech space – what worked, what didn’t, how to pursue it.
More information is provided at the Fashion|Tech|PHL Meetup event page.
Talk with “Ingenious” Author Jason Fagone
Sunday, December 8, 3:00 pm
We’re pleased to have local author Jason Fagone to talk about his recently released book “Ingenious.” Join us at 3 pm on the 8th for the kick-off event of a Northeast tour for Jason and Kevin Smith, one of the book’s characters, who built a 207-MPGe electric car by hand out of junkyard parts in an Illinois cornfield. That means that car will be here at our space for you to check out! We’re very happy to be hosting Jason, who also tells the story of the West Philly Hybrid X team in the book, which you can read an excerpt of here, and purchase in lots of places, including Amazon. Event is FREE.
