Hearables: How Bose Is Building The Next Generation of Smart Wearables (Wearable Europe 2020)

Mr Michael Ludden, Global Head of Developer Advocacy
Bose Corporation
United States

Presentation Summary

Join this session to learn about the innovative new wearables that are defining a new category of "hearables" as well as audio augmented reality. What does it mean and why is it a potentially potent new lane for XR and the world of smart wearables. Here's a hint: it's all about the *lack* of a screen and leveraging other senses and heuristics. Attendees can expect to leave this session with minds blown and, hopefully, full of an expanded array of viable concepts and ideas that can be used to build a more human computer interface with smart wearables.
