Wearable Technology Minor featured in Toronto Star

While OCAD had a strong history of teaching fibre, jewelry making, industrial design, and mobile development, wearable technology was an area just starting to be explored. Two years later I’m happy to report that we’ve successful launched two new courses (1 & 2) as well as an undergraduate minor in this field of study. Yesterday the Toronto Star published a great article on some of these recent developments:
