Got to love this human body symbiosis...when you think about it it is amazing that high-tech has never tried to invade fashion...but we have got all the gadgets and technology to do so! (slick covers for smart phones don't count here)

Very nichy Susan...I am thinking something with a broad appeal...for example clothing that changes color or texture...embedded solar panel (even if very low efficiency) for display etc

An Autodesk employee made a great suggestion about integrating fashion and medicine: what if the skins with tubing were used to deliver chemotherapy to cancer patients?

The first page shows a woman with purple hair with some tubing across her shoulder. Those are the 3D printed skins which have tubing to allow ink to flow through.

New Challenges to creativity

In my opinion this will be the real application for "Wearable" technology. The technology going into the dress material that can chnage the color, shade depending upon the ambient light and the mood of the wearer , can become warm or cold depending upon the outside temperature, can generate the desired scent without the need to apply perfume and so on.

 

So the Haute Couture has now new challenges to its creativity!
