Future Wearable Tech from NYU Students
While high school science whiz kids from around the world are traveling to Reno, NV to compete in this year’s [Intel Science and Engineering Fair](http://bit.ly/14Sfwz), a group tech-savvy students at Tisch School of the Arts in New York will hold their [IPT Spring Show 2009](http://itp.nyu.edu/shows/spring2009/).
It’s a “festival of interactive sight, sound and technology from the student artists and innovators at ITP.” The event is free and open to the public on May 10-11. No RSVP required.
In this week’s Rocketboom Tech segment, Host Ellie Rountree gets a sneak peek at a few of the wearable technologies being created by students, including a clever paparazzi protector and a mechanism that rigs your digital music player to adjust it’s playlist to the pace of your heartbeat.
RocketboomTech is a weekly segment sponsored by Intel. The aim is to share stories we find interesting, where people are using technology in innovative ways. And along the way, show how things work. Things like wireless broadband Internet technology called [WiMAX](http://scoop.intel.com/2009/04/wimax-gets-a-rocketboom-tech-treatment.php).
It’s inspiring to see college students work their wits blending their interest in technology with a passion for design. Visit the [TischITP blog ](http://itp.nyu.edu/sigs/news/category/featured/)for more insights.
