An Ottawa Summer Full of Innovation, Making and Wearable TechThere’s no slowing down for us this summer. From IoT meetups to speaking at a Wearables industry event, and working on our own D1 MakerLab projects, we’ve been busy!
But one of the highlights for us so far was being introduced to the We Are Wearables tech community, a grass roots organization whose mission is to promote the adoption and development of wearable technology.
The group was originally started in Toronto by Tom Richal and then quickly expanded with a second chapter in Chicago. Than earlier this summer, an Ottawa chapter was born – a community we're proud to sponsor and be a part of.
The We Are Wearables Ottawa (WWOTT) chapter held it’s inaugural kick-off meeting this past June at Systemscopes office in the heart of the byward market. The event featured over a 100 members from Ottawa’s tech community and an expert panel of industry veterans, passionate about design, technology and wearables, including our own VP of Industrial Design – Mr. James Henderson.
