As wearable technology rapidly develops and expands, there are two interesting events coming up in October. One in Dublin, and one in London.
London Event October 22nd
The London event is all day, and includes Sonny Vu from Misfit Wearables who will also be speaking at the Dublin Web Summit . If you can’t make it over to the longer event in London on October 22nd, we are fortunate to enough to have our own event here in Dublin, on October 15th, hosted by the Science Gallery.
