On September 30th, 2013, the Glazed Conference at San Francisco’s Mint focused on current trends around mobile and wearable technology and where the industry is heading. The dialogue provoked an interesting debate around everything from ethics and business models to style and design and how it will impact niche verticals such as healthcare and music. A weekend hackathon put on by Stained Glass Labs and AngelHack preceded the event.
The event ended with a stylish and trendy Tech Fashion Show from Ubergizmo and Glazed Conference that featured wearable technology demos. The industry’s top tier investors, press, developers and entrepreneurs gathered to celebrate fashion, art, and technology that showcased the latest innovations. Have a look:
Sponsored by Lenovo and produced by Y’Anad Burrell – Glass House Communications founder, the fashion show featured the following designers: Manic Designs by Rachel Riot, Roc Rio by Rickie Lee, Christina Morgan Cree and SENSOREE. Throughout the evening, there was also a funky screen photo show by Liz Caruana, Warren Difranco, 510 Media and Edward Jefferson.
