The event will also feature Speakable CEO Jordan Hewson and Zipline founder Keller Rinaudo.
While the smartphone revolution continues, the mobile industry is rapidly evolving to include a host of new devices, from drones to virtual reality headsets to wearables.
That broadening of the mobile landscape will be the focus of a Nov. 10 event, “An Evening with Code Mobile,” which will feature an interview with Clay Bavor, the head of virtual reality at Google and the man behind the company’s just-introduced Daydream View headset.
But Google’s vision for Daydream goes beyond a single headset and envisions Android at the center of a broad array of phones and headsets that will be made by Google and an array of other phone makers.
Also sitting in the red chairs will be Keller Rinaudo, CEO of drone medicine delivery firm Zipline, and Jordan Hewson, CEO of Speakable (and daughter of U2 frontman Bono).
Zipline, for those who haven’t heard, is a California startup working to use drones to deliver blood and eventually medicine to inaccessible areas of developing countries. The company just made its first deliveries of blood and plasma in conjunction with the Rwandan government.
Hewson, meanwhile, started Speakable as a way for people to engage in social action directly from articles on their mobile devices via a signature Action Button. Its publisher partners include Vice, The Huffington Post and The Guardian.
And, of course, there will be plenty of time for cocktails and conversation before and after the formal program.
The event takes place at Ericsson’s campus in Santa Clara, Calif. Space is extremely limited, so if you want to attend, be sure to sign up right away.
