WT | Wearable Technologies, a Munich-based association for the development and proliferation of wearable technologies, is staging its first conference in Australia on December 7 and 8 at the International Conference and Convention Centre (ICC) in Sydney’s Darling Harbour.
It is the latest in series of events staged this year around the world: in San Francisco, Bangalore, Hong Kong and in Dusseldorf, where it was held in conjunction with Medica, the worldwide largest medical marketplace.
Speakers in Sydney will include: the senior sports scientist for the US Olympic Committee, Phil Cheetham; former Adidas VP of wearable sport electronics, Qaizar Hassonjee; Australia’s Ambassador for Singularity University, Kaila Colbin.
The program has been developed for technology developers, industry executives and entrepreneurs and cover five major themes: Developing wearable technologies; wearables for healthcare and wellbeing; wearables for sports and performance; wearables for transactions and payments; wearables for safety, security and the Internet of Things.
The event will also feature a demonstration of Cochear’s Nucleus 7 Sound Processor. It enables people with a Cochlear Nucleus Implant to stream sound directly from a compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch directly to their sound processor and to control, monitor and customise their hearing using the Nucleus Smart App on their Apple device.
WT’s CEO, Christian Stammel has travelled from the organisation’s head office to host the event and meet local innovators.
