Natural Human Interactivity in the World of Smart Glasses and Wearables
Smart glasses are graduating from tiny monocular displays to a 3D immersive experience, overlaying rich contextual information right where you need it. Now the questions coming into the spotlight are “What’s the optimal interaction model for the enterprise-class workflows powered by smart glasses? Can we combine hand gestures, voice, eye tracking, head motion, and contextual information from wearables to build a more intuitive and natural user interaction?” Augmented interactive reality and smart glasses promise to increase productivity and streamline workflows in ways that hasn’t been seen before, and we’ll explore why natural interaction is the key to make it all possible.

Avoiding the Sock Drawer: Lessons from Consumer Wearables
Consumer Wearables have been on the market for several years, ever since FitBit successfully married the same motion sensing technology of the Nintendo Wii and a silicon strap for avid Quantified Self practitioners. As the promise of medical wearables transitions into a reality, there are several critical lessons learned from consumer wearables that must be taken to heart by the medical device community. So much of the discussion of medical wearables presumes the patient will use the device, but like so many treadmills turned clothing racks, patients are unlikely adhere to prescribed therapies with the voracity of their Starbucks habit. This talk will highlight the successful and failed attempts by consumer wearables to become habit forming and offer a framework to evaluate your medical wearables potential patient stickiness.

Integration of Wearable and Standards Panel
Moderator: Professor Guang – Zhong Yang
Smart watches. Smart clothing. Smart everything. Wearable technology is proving that it’s here to stay, but how do we move from today’s early attempts to the creation of wearable experiences that improve lives? Wearables are ready to explode far beyond just fitness tools. The day is coming when wearables will be as much a part of your business process as computers. But what stands in the way of that integration? How do standards play a role?
