    Susan, Vivia, Joseph, Sharon & I metup in the Art Center College of Design (main campus) Cafatera from about noon-6p today to work on our presentation for WearableTechLA on Thursday. We weren’t able to reconsider our hardware solution, but we did take the opportunity to consider the Extreme Wearable Designathon Judge’s advice to move past the Find Water use case, and think more about Wayfinding.

    We developed an Ephemeral Wayfinding scenario and created presentation slides. I got to live out my lifelong dream of being a Wearable Tech Hand Model! Here are some images from our day:

    Wayfinding & the Social Compass 

    In the children’s game “warmer – cooler” the seeker receives feedback after every step or two. Using constant feedback as a guide, the seeker begins to converge on the object of her quest, without prior knowledge of her destination.

    Judges' Feedback

    I had a chance to see a video of the XWD awards presentation on the MDP rooftop. I’m not posting it here as it was a private video. I’ll add it if it becomes public. We pretty much know what happened anyway, but what was interesting about this replay was that 3 teams got awards, but only 1 team got Award + Critique: us!

        Thanks for the WearableTechLA schedule Sharon! So the 3 teams have 5 minutes each, or maybe more like 4 minutes to get their whole pitch out!

        Yes, awesome job Susan!! 🙂

          Syuzi said they might just provide a location for each team to display the product with a poster with introduction. We may not need to present.
          Let’s wait for her email for the final confirmation.

            Ekin told me they won’t present their work at wearable tech LA.

      Wearable Tech LA is the first Entertainment and Health Wearable conference held in Los Angeles. Attending Wearable Tech LA will give you an opportunity to meet and collaborate with the best of Hollywood, Music, and Sports including leaders from the NBA, NFL, NHL, and others.
      According to International Data Corporation, wearables will be the fastest-emerging category and become a $12B industry in 2018. You’ll also get the inside track from industry leaders on wearables, a first look at emerging wearable computing, watch fast track pitches from 15 startups and network with top VCs, angels, large corporation (e.g. GoPro, Intel, Samsung, adidas, Qualcomm, Google, etc.) and thought leaders.

      Key highlights:
      World’s First Wearable Entertainment and Health conference in LA
      Cocktail reception & wearable showcase
      400-500 attendees
      Top celebrities from Hollywood, Music and Sports
      20 dynamic keynotes, 50 speakers and 15 startups pitching their products – 3 winners to be announced.
      Panel discussion with thought leaders in the wearable entertainment and spaces
      Live demos including a demo on extreme wearables
      Top VCs and corporations (e.g. GoPro, Intel, Samsung, Qualcomm, Google, etc…)

      Wearable Tech LA sounds so exciting. And I can’t wait to join it and meet all of you there:)

      I think we definitely need to meet up at least once before July 17. We can set up a meeting and talk about the feedback we got. I’m free anytime after Wednesday, but my finals are coming soon. I understand Susan and Vivia might have hard time to meet up, but we will try our best.

        Oh, Allia / Ekin won’t present? That’s a shame. We didn’t hear anything from Courtney / MDP this week. But next week I hope they’ll give us some info on WTLA. As Sharon said above, it might be more of a “Poster Session” than “Presentation.”

        The judges feedback is kind of funny – they liked the quality of our build, but didn’t like it on the wrist, and didn’t like the water finding use case as much as wayfinding. So they sort of said, “we love your work, now throw it away and start over”! 😛

        The answer to the 1st 1/2 of that, off the wrist might be that we aren’t going to have time to develop that before the 17th, even if we wanted to?

        The use case though is mostly presentation rather than engineering to do now, so we could develop that if we wanted to.

        For meeting F2F, Mon-Wed-Fri are a little better for me, but my schedule is flexible ATM, so I can probably work out any day that works for others. I’m happy going up to Art Center, or wherever we like. You’re all welcome at my place in Rosemead, too.

        We probably can’t get all 8 of us together, but as many of us as want to / are able to, would be great. And we can also discuss here on the website, or we could do a Google Video Hangout.

        Thanks Joseph!
