Speech draft

Good morning, everyone! I'm Sacha Chua from Ateneo de Manila University. I'm glad to have an opportunity to talk to you about wearable computing - what it is, what you can do with it, and how you can get started.

What is wearable computing?

Before I talk about wearable computing, I'd like to take you first on a very, very quick tour of computer history so that we get an idea of how quickly things change and how much technology has affected our lives.

Computer history (10 seconds)

This is the information age.

Information is power.

Technology changes the way we do things. Information is power.
