The new day-long sub-conference of the re:publica 2015 on May 5th, #FASHIONTECH BERLIN, is all about fashion, technology and Wearables. The event unites gadgets, hacking and fashion, creating a (long overdue) bridge between technology and design. Wearables, and their potential for all-encompassing connectivity, have become particularly interesting in connection with the Internet of Things (IoT). It will take place on the first day, May 5th. Next to the talks, there will be a lab with additional sessions, workshops, meet-ups, and an exhibition space.
On the second day of the #rp15, the lab will remain in place, and will focus on the Internet of Things in connection with design. On the third day of the conference, the lab will be dealing mainly with the issue of Wearables in fields like sports, healthcare or medicine.
