Wearable computing is becoming the next transformational technology that is shaping the future of the technological landscape. WearTech is a platform that provides students with resources and bridges them to the wearable industry. We are more than just a student club.
WearTech is an engineering student club started by a group of University of Toronto students to make wearable technology more accessible to students who wish to gain greater understanding and develop skills related to the industry.
Our goal at WearTech is to promote and enrich students with knowledge pertaining to wearable technologies through workshops, seminars, and design projects. Students will be working with cutting-edge technologies including, but not limited to, software development, mobile development, embedded systems programming, hardware programming, and mechanical prototyping.
Professor Steve Mann is our Chief Technical Advisor. With more than 40 years of experience in wearable technology, he is widely recognized as the “father of wearable computing” for his invention of “Digital Eye Glass” (EyeTap) and mediated reality, the predecessor of augmented reality.
He is also the inventor of Chirplet Transform, Comparametric Equations, HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging, the first smartwatch, and numerous other transformative technologies.
Professor Mann’s expertise and involvement will ensure that WearTech adopts innovative approaches to wearable computing, and will help WearTech remain at the forefront of wearable innovation.
