You won’t want to miss this!

This is the first ever exhibit dedicated to the future of wearable technology infused with tools to make us stronger, more aware or our environment and healthier. We’ll get to experience wearables with haptic feedback, wearables that react to sound, and even a wearable that can adjust the ambient temperature of our micro-environment!
