Wearable Tech

Wearable Tech explores technologies designed for the body. From smartwatches and spy cameras to pacemakers and pet tracking devices, this exhibition highlights a range of remarkable innovations dating back to the nineteenth century. Visitors will learn about the materials and functions of many unexpected wearables – some of which predate today’s “smart” devices, and others which are paving the way for wearable technologies still to come. Visitors can test a concussion sensor on a hockey helmet, listen to sounds captured by a whale recording tag, scan a cat microchip, and test their skill at keeping pace with a pacemaker.
