Mobile and Wearables
The proliferation of mobile technologies raises profound questions about the role of mobility in the communication process. UOIT CDMS researchers investigate the industries, policies, processes and implications relevant to the widening variety of mobile technologies that can be carried by hand, placed in a pocket, worn on the body, implanted and even consumed. CDMS is also the home of Decimal Lab, a leading centre for the study of augmented reality and the impact of mobile and wearable technologies on our personal lives, culture and the arts.
