Wearable Wednesday February 2014: PUSH & Construct Hackathon Winner
Wednesday, February 26, 2014
7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

February 2014′s featured wearable tech company will be Toronto’s PUSH who will be demoing the first fitness tracking device that measures strength along with engaging in a discussion around the Quantified Self. We will also have a presentation from HackerNest who will be giving us the rundown from their Mind & Motion Hackathon. Social to follow. Drinks/eats provided.

Here is the game plan:

1. HackerNest Construct Hackathon: Mind & Motion

The HackerNest team will be in the house to give us a rundown of the winners and learnings from their next-gen user interface Hackathon, Construct: Mind & Motion, which would have just wrapped up the week before. You can find more details about Construct here.

2. Featured Wearable Tech: PUSH

Toronto-based PUSH will talk about and demo their wearable tech for the gym followed by a discussion on the Quantified Self as it relates to wearables. You can find more details about PUSH here.

3. Social & Hands-on with Tech

Time to connect with each other and get your hands-on the wearables in the room.

NOTE: These details may change slightly but the line-up is confirmed. I will also be confirming the location soon but it will be downtown TO.

Special thanks to HackerNest and PUSH for their support for this meetup.
