Will your underwear become a node on the Internet of Things? Gerry Elman attended the Greater Philadelphia Smart Fabrics Conference at Drexel University’s Center for Functional Fabrics on May 9, 2017. He enjoyed learning more about the Smart Belly Band for pregnant moms, developed in the Shima Seiki Haute Technology Lab at Drexel’s ExCITe Center.
Gerry continues to hone his cutting-edge expertise on the implications of intellectual property and cybersecurity law for this burgeoning field of technological development.
