Chic gear to suit net generation
The technology will be so much a part of you and your clothing, the outside world might not even know it is there though.
But there are many design challenges for fashion and engineers if they want people to wear technology. One thing is certain, you will not have to resemble the Borg from Star Trek if you do not want to.
Gadget gear: With gadgets and technologies playing an increasingly important part in how people organise their lives, carrying them is a must. Powerful processors have made mobile phones more like pocket computers and allow people to do a lot more with them. Wearing this computing power inconspicuously would make life easier, according to fashion specialists, technologists and engineers who gathered in Birmingham last week for a wearable computing conference. Muttering into a wire plugged into a mobile phone is a familiar, yet still quite disconcerting sight and for years headphones have been used to listen to music whilst strolling or jogging. Bluetooth headsets can clip onto the ear and allow a wireless connection to your mobile and headsets with tiny screens attached to glasses allow wearers to see a computer screen. —BBC
