If everything appears on your T-shirt ( sometimes without your knowledge), You may be in for some embarrassing moments if you are in a wrong company. But overall this idea is something evolutionary and may be good hit for the gennext

What I like about the clothing is that you can set it up to make alarm images and sounds if your child feels threatened anywhere. These T-shirts could save a lot of children from being taken against their will. Just a thought.

Interesting application @ERBUS...although how is that different than a child pressing a panic button or pressing ore-programmed key on the cell phone?

And too, everyone around at the time will be alerted that something bad is happening right there? With the cell phone, only some distant contact would be alerted. But the idea of wearable computers is not all that new, is it? A really good application would be, perhaps, someone piloting a ship. No need to stand on the bridge, close to a control console. You wear the control console. You can walk around and send commands by moving your arms or hands, and you can use heads-up displays or glasses for for status displays.

wearable tech is not necessarily new, Bert, you're right, but making it accessible to the masses, and creating a buzz around it to generate mainstream interest is. As we can see from some of the cool suggestions you guys have, the possibilities are pretty vast, and this is just the beginning. I reckon that in 10 years, these will be a norm... we're right on the crest of this wearable wave. So exciting!

I wondered 20 years ago when this was finally going to happen. It's still not quite what I originally envisioned, but it is a huge leap towards it. I imagined the entire shirt as a static/dynamic display - The color, patterns, everything to the point you wouldn't even know it was a programmable shirt if it only displayed a static pattern - plaid, stripes, polka-dots, or tacky tag line. But ladies beware the hacker who breaks into your shirtOS and sends the rgb code for transparency.

This design contains 32*32 LED's. First clever design.Initially i thought it is with an OLED display which is flexible. Also an idea the T-Shirt can be added with optical fibres illuminated by multicolor LED's giving bigger effect.

How would you clean this shirt? Do you need an electronics-friendly dry cleaning?

So in theory, you could have long sleeve shirt garment, that you could change from white with pin stripes and faux collar, for a formal board level meeting, to a black crew, for a casual day at the office. The only thing you won't be able to change will be the orange spaghetti sauce stains on the shirt from lunch. Of course you could create a wallpaper spaghetti stain pattern so it looks normal. You could even throw in some artistic noodles if you wanted to. A shirt with spaghetti sauce sploteches and noodles patterned on it. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

Holy crap, I want one! Actually, I want 7, so I can wear one every day. It's the only shirt I'll need. Hope they can design a black one too.
