Wearable technology has come a long way since the calculator watch. In the past whenever I thought of the term âwearable technologyâ the first things I would like of were always calculator watches and pedometers, but boy have things changed! Even if youâre a skeptic, this blogger thinks that pretty much everyone will be using some type of wearable tech by 2020.
It seems like wearable technology is everywhere. Whether it is Google Glass, or the Samsung Galaxy Gear, there seems to be nothing that you can't tech out. There is Colour Change Couture, fabric that changes color when wet, The Programmable T-shirt, which, when combined with the smartphone app, allows the wearer to display tweets, Facebook statuses, and pictures. Celebs are even getting on the wearable tech bandwagon; Nicole Scherzinger wore a dress made of silk, Swarovski crystals, and 2,000 LED lights that displayed tweets in real time when the hashtag #tweetthedress was used.
