QUT students join some of the world’s most forward thinking designers & innovators

The DIS Experience Night was an eye opening event on the integration of technology with the human body. The concepts which were displayed and demonstrated throughout the night gave a glimpse into what the future of human integrated technology may look like. There was an array of concepts both ready for commercial release, as well as others which were highly fictional, encouraging the audience to question life and the way society may communicate with such fused technology.

Overall, the DIS Experience Night was a great opportunity to mix wDIS nightith engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and industry experts, whilst giving an alternate view on the way we look at technology.

ACE proudly supports sponsorship of QUT students to attend these inspiring and innovative events.  Many thanks to Sean Davidson from Fold Products for sharing your thoughts about this event.
