Stacey Burr Presentation
Purdue Alumni Stacy Burr presented about her time in the emerging wearables industry last week, and taught about wearables and the challenges associated with designing these products!
Over the last 10 years, "wearables" have emerged as a high growth and popular consumer products category. Smart wrist trackers may be the most common form factor but wearables can also be found in rings, clothing, shoes, glasses, and implanted under the skin. Body-worn 24/7 wearables are arguably the most intimate form of hardware and sensors. Stacey Burr has been working in wearables for the last 20 years and will share some of the most challenging human factors and user-centered design issues associated with these products.
