Imperica's event on wearable technology took place over two days in May 2014 at the BFI Southbank in London, as part of the Sci-Fi London festival.
From the calculator watch of the 1980s, things have certainly moved on in terms of uniting technology with wearable objects. The term "wearables" has come into fashion as a bit of a catch-all for anything digital that you can also wear. From the Nike+ to the Samsung Galaxy Gear via Google Glass, it still feels like the wearables concept is in its infancy, but investment and attention is advancing very quickly.
Will your smartphone soon become outmoded? Will you be buying clothing with location technologies? Maybe your socks will record your journey history?
What is the potential for wearable technologies? What privacy and social implications are there? Will wearables become fundamental to our lives, or a fad which will soon burn out and fade away?
