Wearable Technology: The edge of the BOOM!

Join Dr David Rowlands, Deputy Director of Griffith's Sports and Biomedical
Engineering Lab,  <http://sabellabs.com/>SABEL, <http://sabellabs.com/> 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 <http://jaybirdreign.com/> 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.
