CASPA 2014 Summer Symposium

Enabling Technologies That Will Shape The Next Wearable Applications


Create Mainstream Market Opportunities For A Broad Range Of Industries




The emergence of the Internet of Things will enable contextual interaction of people, places, and things in time and space – what we are now experiencing is the transition from the Mobile Computing Era to the Context Computing Era, which is creating a wide variety of mainstream market opportunities that are redefining the human experience. Wearable technology and devices are now one of the most disruptive and exciting phenomena of our age! Digital health is rapidly evolving as companies seek to provide more accurate data, offer more about health than fitness, offer tools that make data “actionable” and integrate in to the healthcare system. Recent advancements in sensor, Bluetooth and processing technologies, are helping to make smart wearable devices a new reality. Several key elements must be addressed for Wearables 2.0 in terms of design, privacy factors, battery life and all-in-one device offering in order to become the desired product everyone wants to wear 24/7. We look forward to seeing the next generations of wearables evolve rapidly to empower us with an amazing amount of information about ourselves and offer us exceptional user experience.
