Presentation Summary

We are pioneering new connection techniques that allow someone with minimal skill to make fool proof connections every time that are durable and washable. Now what the industry needs is the ability to scale up and make these connections en-masse. This may work for 100 units or 1,000 units. What about making 25,000 of something? What about 100,000 units or 1 million units.
This is what is holding back the Industry and the commercialization of Wearable Tech.
My Discussion will explore these points and what we can do as an Industry to "engineer around" the issue of durable connections.
