Via Wareable!

our annual list of women leading the way in wearable tech, whether they’re inventing new devices, founding startups or researching the impact that connected self tech is having on our bodies.

We picked 10 alumni who have previously made our lists and 10 fresh faces, most of whom aren’t new to regular readers of the site but are new to this list. Then we asked some of our picks to tell us which women they are excited about in wearable tech, VR and AR right now – Adidas’ Stacey Burr was namechecked a lot as a “visionary” and an inspiring entrepreneur.

This could obviously never be a comprehensive list – so tweet us with your own suggestions or add them to the comments below.

Sabine Seymour

Founder of SUPA

Sabine Seymour is a big name in fashion tech, with 20 years of writing, researching and designing under her belt, not to mention serving as director of the Fashionable Technology Lab at Parsons School of Design where she is also an assistant professor.

Seymour’s latest venture is Supa AI, which is selling limited edition smart garments, including a smart sports bra, online and soon in retail stores but focusing on partnerships with brands to create ‘Supa Powered’ clothing with features around sports, nutrition and gaming. “What can women in fashion tech bring? Unbiased artificial intelligence, ‘female’ engineering, and essential femtech products.”

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
