Hey folks – I’m nearly complete a part of research in forgetfulness, looking at smart devices to reduce anxiety when we forget. There is now another study I am working on and would love to have a few testers that don’t mind using a few different devices (message bags etc) and giving regular feedback. It involves using a device for a 2 week period (as much or as little as you like) and then feeding back with a short questionnaire online.
A short video to explain how these smart bags work. They are currently available for pre-order from ilyware. There is a video to follow to demo the stand alone version that you can attach to your own bag!

Technology festival Wuthering Bytes is happening again this year at Hebden Bridge and I am privileged to be a speaker there on the final day, Friday October 2nd.
Tickets are a tenner per day that you want to attend which is a really great way to do it so you don’t necessarily have to attend the full week – though by the looks of it there is something for everyone and a good variety of content, more information is available from the Wuthering Bytes website or from the Twitter account but here is a general overview of the days and content (not in order of days).
