  • Developing for Wearable Devices: Wearable tech needs software development and low-power design.
  • Design Principles: Impressive design has become just as important as the functionality.
  • Verticals: Discuss the latest developments in quantified self and lifestyle devices.
  • IoT and Wearable Connectivity: The integration of the Internet of Things and wearable devices with the Physical World.
  • The Business View of IoT: Did you bring your idea to market – either successfully or not? Walk the audience through the journey to Product Launch.

3D Printing:

  • Beyond Prototyping: Expand the conversation around applications of 3D printing.
  • Designing in 3D: Take your project from concept to reality.
  • Networked Objects: The integration of Internet of Things into 3D printed objects.

"This year's track listing is such a testament to how far the industry has grown since Designers of Things' launch last year," said Pamela Moore, SVP of Content and Strategy with UBM, PLC. "We're thrilled to be able to offer such dedicated and intricate content within the realms of IoT and 3D printing, two extremely compelling topics experiencing incredible growth within the design industry."
