LISTEN TO EPISODE 12
Listen to the Future of Wearables podcast to hear Liza Kindred’s thoughts on the merging of textiles and wearable technology – like Project Jacquard, Google and Levi’s collaboration weaving touch sensors into fabrics. She insists wearables need to be more than just “slap a screen on” gadgets. Wearables like smartwatches are novel, but Kindred believes adoption will not be widespread with that kind of screen-based wearable tech. And what about business models for smart textiles and fashion tech? Listen to the podcast for her take on making money with screen-free wearable fashion. Read on and we’ll walk you through our mobile innovation workshop – an intensive strategy session hosted at our headquarters in San Francisco.
