I haven't really considered this as a potential problem for wearables. I'll have to look into it!

ESD gets built up between human and earth. This device will either have its own local "ground" (isolated from the human body) or use the human body as its ground. Even if the potential between the human and earth is lots of kV, there wont be any problem, as no damaging current will flow between the electronics and the human.  But it will need sufficient isolation between the electronics and earth (and maybe human) not to spark when bracelet gets between the human and a metallic earth surface.

This bracelet be programmed to do interesting artistic stuff when attached to a dancer :)

Wow!! New trends being set in fashion...and wearable electronics takes part there!! While pondering over wearable electronics circuit, a question occurred to me: how do we have a "real ground" for the circuit? How do we protect the circuit from the Electrostatic Voltage that gets generated in the body? Never thought about it.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
