Attending Upcoming Future of Wearable Technology In Healthcare Conference

A.S. (opposite of P.S.!)

I’m bringing my buddy Mr. RIMP. He’s a wearable robot controlled by Google Glass! Kids love him. And he even has a Twitter account!

July 25-26, in Indianapolis, The International Society of Wearable Technology in Healthcare is putting on what promises to be tremendous conference on wearables in medicine. Predictably, Google Glass is well represented, with at least eleven presentations out of a nineteen (some of which are TBA, so could be Glass as well).


I’ll be there, to add to my over 2000 #GoogleGlass tweets, a many blog posts and trade journal articles. This is a place to for me highlight speaker Twitter accounts and tweets. Below are just those I could find.

I also created the Twitter list Wearable Tech Conference.
