Title: Wearable Computing 
Speaker: Dr. Angus Yeung 
Date/TimeMay 22, 2015 - 12:40 - 14:30 
Place: FENS G035
Abstract: This tutorial/seminar is inviting you to examine the wearable technologies that are just starting to become a part of our everyday lives.  They live on our wrists, attached to our eyeglasses, and embedded in our clothes.  We will learn how Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) makes wearable technologies possible, how Android Wear brings smart watches into Android ecosystem, and how Apple Notification Center Service (ANCS) empowers your Apple Watch. Finally, we will prototype a wearable device using Intel Edison Breakout Board and supercharge it with some serious fun with Node.js. Programming languages such as C, Android, Swift and JavaScript are used but no prior knowledge of them is required.
