Wearable Tech

Everyone loves to talk about wearable tech–and to talk about how many billions there are to be made–but if wearables are so great, why are so many unwearable? We see a better way, one that finally goes beyond strapping a screen on your wrist–or throwing a sensor in a plastic bracelet. We believe in creating real insight, joy, and utility with this most personal of technologies—for broadcast, interaction, privacy, tracking, and more. The landscape is fractured, the technology is burgeoning, and the real adoption is just getting started.

Read about the ideas, technologies, and products that you need to know to navigate this new world. And be sure to stay tuned–our founder, Liza Kindred, and our advisor, Josh Clark, are writing the book about design principles for wearable tech and IoT. We’ve worked with companies like Cisco, Bergdorfs, and Hearst–and we’ll help you make something amazing.
