Perhaps some of you noticed the work of Trafo Pop who were featured in the Adafruit Blog previously. These guys are now setting up the first festival for wearable electronics and arts in Berlin.
Following the motto “Make Your Dress Code”, Wear It, will take place October 11-12 in historic Berlin, Kreuzberg. They’ve invited leading experts and tech evangelists from the global wearables scene to lead interdisciplinary workshops, talks, discussions, performances and an exhibition. There will also be a flashmob and other unique activities. Check out their website www.wearit-berlin.com for more info!
