On You: A Story of Wearable Computing (Mountain View, California)

This is a traveling exhibit by the Georgia Institute of Technology on display at the Museum.

Pioneers have experimented with wearing computers for half a century. Yet aside from a few specialized apps like fitness trackers, our bodies remain largely free of the smart tech that fills our pockets and purses.

Why? Besides huge questions around how wearable computing might fit into our social and everyday lives, the technology wasn’t ready. Early devices were too bulky, hot, isolated, or hard to use.

Displaying consumer, professional, and homemade devices, On You explores the four key technical hurdles to making a consumer wearable computer: power and heat, networking, mobile input, and displays. Have they been solved? Come find out, and discover the technology that yearns to be on you!

Join us for the opening of On You: A Story of Wearable Computing on display at the Computer History Museum. The exhibit will be on display from June 30 to September 20.
