Personal or intrusive?

I believe that sounds created by clothing need to be carefully considered to respect to the rest of the public. While boom boxes in the subway are intrusive, headphones allow many people to listen to their (different) music in private. I trust that the clothing sound systems will be designed to provide a personal listening experience and that any public "broadcast" mode will be reserved for special occasions (such as providing music at a party).

One of the many ways to sell more unnecessary electronics that could only be lying under utilized or completely not usable for anyone.

How would samrt clothes be useful for general public. Yes it seems to have more usage for fashion houses and fashion designers. Will they need to come under regulation standard.

Intentional or not, it was a pretty good pun on fabric: "Processors need to be seamlessly integrated into a garment"



Although I can do without ambient noise emanating from the clothing of people around me, something interesting will eventually come from all this experimentation.

The real Smart Wear

Instead of changing the color by the mood, the actual need especially for women is to have the perfect match between the whatever is worn as top , with whatever is worn as bootom, plus the footwear, the handwear , the earings and all that stuff.

If the smart wear can solve this problem of matching, without having to have overspilling wardrobes and without the women spenind hours in front of mirrors , that I will call a SMART WEAR.

@wilber, hey, I actually like your idea! Imagine your friend's jacket start changing its colors as I said something to her?

In the picture with title "Researcher at Aalto university...", the fabric pattern remind of some news related to incorporating solar energy absorbing material into the fabric and using it as a charging device. Maybe another cool idea to pursue.

Perhaps someone could use that "mood ring" idea and create an accurate, wearable lie detector test.

We can make fabric change color based on the mood of the person then it will be super cool. It really need a couple of sensors to sense the mood and nanocomposite materials to incorporate in the fabric.
