Joseph Czikk chatted with Bionym cofounder Karl Martin at the #SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas.

In the video the Toronto startup cofounder shows us the pre-production model of the Nymi band while talking all things SXSW, wearable tech and even an embarrassing story involving Karl pitching to a “major unnamed gaming console company”.
