Event Details

With the advent of devices like Google Glass, Pebble and a rumored Apple smartwatch, next-generation wearable computing devices are quickly emerging as the next phase of the mobile revolution. But the question remains: Are we seeing the dawn of a new day, or just a fad? How will wearable computing impact interactive applications and location-based services? What changes when our bodies are always engaged with hyper-connected, real-time, immersive tech?


As hypotheses fly and conjectures abound, we'd like to take a moment to explore the reality of a not-so-sci-fi future that's just around the corner. Please join us on Thursday, May 23rd at 6:30pm as we explore this groundbreaking topic and hear from thought leaders who are on the forefront of wearable computing.

Internet Week 2013 - How will wearable tech change the world?


Meet our panel

Nilay Patel - The Verge

When Nilay Patel was four years old, he drove a Chrysler into a small pond because he was trying to learn how the gearshift worked. Years later, he became a technology journalist. He has thus far remained dry.

Before serving as Managing Editor of The Verge, Nilay spent four years as Managing Editor of Engadget, where he drew upon his background as a lawyer to report and explain complex legal situations in everyday terminology — a niche that led to SAY Media naming Nilay one of 10 "voices that matter" in technology journalism.

Nilay has appeared on CNN, CNN International, NPR, Fox News, MSNBC, Sky News, NHK, G4TV, TWiT, and others. He also co-hosts The Vergecast with fellow editors Joshua Topolsky and Paul Miller.

Barry Wacksman is the Chief Growth Officer of R/GA, including business development, corporate strategy and industry thought leadership.  Barry’s articles have been published in a wide variety of industry publications, and he has presented on topics pertaining to the digital age at conferences and events around the world.

Barry serves on the board of directors of the Advertising Educational Foundation, the Miami Ad School and Pilobolus Dance Theatre.  He graduated from Ohio State University with a B.A. in philosophy and was a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at Syracuse University.
