Come to the nexUX Meetup!

With Jesse Jur of NCSU Textiles

Truly wearable technology

In the near future, technology won't only be found on our wrists, but in our clothes. It will measure, draw its power from, and put user interface on our bodies. How will this technology change our lives? How might we use it to improve them? In this meetup we'll introduce this technology, and consider its implications. 

Jesse Jur is an Assistant Professor in NC State's college of textiles. His research targets the development of materials processing methods for nanoscale inorganic integration with polymer-based materials, including nonwoven textiles. Applications for his research include new electronic textiles that respond to chemical, photo and mechanical environmental changes, as well as the enhancement of the mechanical and thermal stability of modified fiber systems.

As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX and technology. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.

RSVP and send your questions in advance using the buttons below. 

Also, please forward this email to whomever you think might be interested!

How

There is ample parking near the Hunt Library on NCSU’s Centennial Campus.

  1. Visit the Parking Kiosk located as you enter Centennial Campus from the corner Varsity Drive and Avent Ferry Road. At the kiosk you can purchase a day pass for $5.00. This will allow you to park it the C-parking deck located near the Hunt Library on Partners Way. You can access this lot when leaving the parking kiosk by driving down Varsity drive, through Main Campus Drive and taking a right onto Partners Way. The multi-level parking deck will be on your right hand side.
  2. Directly outside the front doors of the Hunt Library (on Partners Way) is an hourly lot. There is a mechanical arm at the entrance to this lot. You can pay by the hour at $2.00/ hour to park here. Just be prepared, as this lot only accepts credit cards (no cash).

Once parked, you will be entering the Hunt Library on the ground floor. The Duke Energy Room is up the yellow stairs and on your left.

NCSU Wolfline buses also service the Hunt Library on several routes. See the full system map (PDF) or the real-time bus tracking map.
