Wearable devices are already part of our daily life or they are ready to flood the market as prototypes somewhere between a dream and a nightmare (Google Glasses, smart tracker Jawbone, Apple Watches and many other).
All these are interesting examples of wearable technology, accessories and clothing always connected to the web. They can detect and monitor vital parameters such as pressure and heart rate, and data from the environment such as external temperature and humidity.

How to make sure that such that these objects are easy to use? How much attention do we have to give to their aesthetics, that has always played a key role in clothing for example? How to ease their use? And what about accessibility and discretion?

We will be discussing all this in:
