Steve Mann has written more than 200 research publications and has been the keynote speaker at more than 25 scholarly and industry symposia and conferences and has also been an invited speaker at more than 50 university Distinguished Lecture Series and colloquia. His work has been shown in numerous museums around the world, including the Smithsonian Institute, National Museum of American History, The Science Museum (Wellcome Wing, opening with Her Majesty The Queen, and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, Tuesday 27 June 2000), Museum of Modern Art (MoMA in New York), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Triennale di Milano, Austin Museum of Art, and San Francisco Art Institute.
He is renowned for his work with the WearComp (wearable computer) and WearCam (eyetap camera and reality mediator), and was the first to keep a web log of his visual experiences (thus inventing the CyborgLog, also known as a "glog").
Mann is also the inventor of the hydraulophone, a musical instrument that runs on water and is currently being installed as a sculptural form in public spaces. See for example, http://wearcam.org/hydraulophone/index.htm
