In the near future, technology won't only be found on our wrists, but in our clothes. It will measure, draw its power from, and put user interface on our bodies. How will this technology change our lives? How might we use it to improve them? In this meetup we'll introduce this technology, and consider its implications.
Jesse Jur is an Assistant Professor in NC State's college of textiles. His research targets the development of materials processing methods for nanoscale inorganic integration with polymer-based materials, including nonwoven textiles. Applications for his research include new electronic textiles that respond to chemical, photo and mechanical environmental changes, as well as the enhancement of the mechanical and thermal stability of modified fiber systems.
As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX and technology. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.
