Would your cooking improve if you had a voice and gesture recognition sous-chef to guide you through recipes? What if you had a hands-free, house-wide communications system or a smart bathroom? What if your house was a smart-home ecosystem that optimizes technology for life assistance.

Technology is revolutionizing how we care for ourselves, our families and our homes. With these diverse ideas and more, Philadelphia University and Verizon will show how technology will continue to improve the way we live and interact with one another. Join us Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016 for an exciting discussion with Verizon experts and PhilaU faculty, view student exhibits and participate in hands-on design thinking challenges. See for yourselves how transdisciplinary teams of industrial design, business, engineering, and fashion students have come up with the most innovative ways to use technology to improve our daily lives.

While on campus, please plan on attending the opening of PhilaU’s new Fashion and Textiles Futures Center. Look for more information on the DesignPhiladelphia website.

Exhibition Coordinator: Michael Leonard, Academic Dean, School of Design and Engineering, Philadelphia University Kanbar College of Design, Engineering and Commerce
