Wearable Technology: If the Tech Fits, Wear It / October 28, 2015 – 11 AM-Noon ET
Description: "Wearable technology" and "wearable devices" are phrases that describe electronics and computers that are integrated into clothing and other accessories that can be worn comfortably on the body. Examples of wearable devices include glasses, watches, headbands, and jewelry. While these technologies show great influence in fashion and entertainment, they have the largest impact in the areas of health, medicine, and fitness. Librarians are also exploring wearable technology's potential for enhancing services and expanding outreach to their organizations.
