by @ 5:06 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors
 

TUESDAY February 21, 2012
SCV Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley
Speaker: Ted Ladd, WIMM Labs
Time: 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: KeyPoint Credit Union, 2805 Bowers Ave., Santa Clara
RSVP: not required
Web: www.CaliforniaConsultants.org

WIMM Labs has created an open platform for wearable computing that includes a capacitive touch screen, an OS distilled from open-source Google Android, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as an accelerometer, magnetometer and vibrating alarm.? This open approach is far different from the proprietary products available from Motorola, Jawbone, Apple, Basis, Fossil and a variety of other companies.
Ted Ladd’s talk will include an overview of the platform, as well as insight into how licensees can build products based on the WIMM hardware, software and web services.? Using WIMM’s partnership with Foxconn, designers have a fast track to bringing products to market.? This is a powerful business opportunity for software and accessory developers, as well as consultants.
