Plantronics Opens Wearable Concept Device To Developers At The Seattle Interactive Conference Mobile App Wearables Hackathon

Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a pioneer in wearable technology, will be present at the Seattle Interactive Conference Mobile App Wearables Hackathon being held on Oct. 26 and 27, 2013. The company will provide qualified teams with a wearable concept device and challenge them to create unique applications that leverage the contextual information generated from multiple sensors in the device.

WHAT:

Plantronics will provide qualified teams at the Seattle Interactive Conference Wearables Hackathon with a wearable concept device built by PLT Labs ( http://pltlabs.com) known simply as Wearable Concept 1. Wearable Concept 1 is equipped with a low-latency, nine-axes sensor which tracks head orientation in three dimensions: heading, pitch and roll (the X, Y and Z axes). It also features tap detection and free-fall detection. Open APIs enable developers to leverage the onboard MFI chip for ease of integration with the iOS platform over Bluetooth® as well as the Windows® operating system. Sample applications can be found at the PLT Labs site.

Demonstrations will show how a wearer using Wearable Concept 1 can manipulate an avatar, on an iPad, in real-time based on their physical head movements, and an award-winning application that allows an individual anywhere in the world to share their view remotely via Google Street View.

ADDITIONAL:

Plantronics will give away $500 in gift cards (mailed after the event) to the best use of this technology as well as other prizes including the Voyager Legend® UC, BackBeat® GO 2 and GameCom® 780.

WHEN:

Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013 at 10 AM – Sunday, Oct. 27 at 6 PM (PDT)

WHERE:
