On You: Wearing Technology

Location: 
Museum of Design Atlanta, 1315 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, GA 30309

Wearable technology and head-mounted displays are in the press daily. Why now? While the basic technology has existed for decades, only recently have these devices become practical and desirable. 

On You: Wearing Technology looks at the challenges along the road to making a consumer wearable computer: power and heat, networking, mobile input, and display through examples of consumer, professional, and “maker” devices.  The exhibition also includes personal stories of individuals who use or create wearable technology. Are you wearing technology? Is technology ON YOU?
