Wearable technology need not be inorganic, unsightly additions to our body, argues Dr Fotini Markopoulo in this talk, in which she shares with us her vision of a future where wearable technology is organic and complements human physiology.

Fotini Markopoulou is a hardware tech designer and
theoretical physicist. She is co­founder of doppel, a
wearable tech company that uses cutting­edge research in
psychophysiology, the study of how the mind and body
affect one­another, to create technology that changes how
we perceive, feel, and behave. Prior to doppel, Fotini was
a founding member and faculty at the Perimeter Institute
for Theoretical Physics in Canada, one of the premier
institutes on the frontiers of theoretical physics.
