There are quite a few exciting maker and wearable tech events coming up in NYC at the end of September:
NYC Media Lab Summit
The NYC Media Lab Annual Summit will be held on NYU’s main campus this Friday, September 25th. One of the highlights is the afternoon showcase, which is billed as the “biggest pan-university science fair.” The event is almost sold out, so grab your ticket soon if you are interested.

World Maker Faire New York 2015
The World Maker Faire is happening this weekend, September 26-27! I’ve visited the maker faire in Austin, TX and was very interested in all of the projects, art, and products shown. Maker faires are a great way to see what’s possible for those who are starting out in tech or learning how to code or build things, and they are also one of the ways that I find inspiration.
Techweek New York 2015
I recently found out about techweek New York through an email announcement, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they offer their expo only passes for free (the regular attendee price is only $50, not too steep for several days of events). Though I don’t know much about the events being held, I’ve looked through the schedule and am very intrigued by the FashionTECH Runway Show being held on October 16th. The majority of the events and the expo are being held in the Metropolitan Pavilion, October 12 – 18.

There is also an ongoing art installation at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) called “This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good” that I’ve been wanting to check out. The exhibit runs through January 31st, 2016 and features the Kinematics Dress by Nervous System – a 3D printed dress created by the art and technology design studio. The exhibit also includes MoMA Studio: Design Interactions which allows visitors to interact with components similar to those used in the exhibit designs. Objects featured include the Arduino, littleBits, Colour Chaser, Ototo, and more.
