Re: wearables

Wearbales are going beyond consumers .I read the NFL was testing wearables on their players during specific games to provide teams with more insight on a particular player and their performance so it's already making its impact there. Wearables are able being used in many offices and factories for employee efficiency benefits.

Options beyond cool

Wearable navigation maybe a great solution for helping the visually impaired navigate to places they need to go—especially if its voice activated. I think wearables can offer great benefits beyond the cool factor to those who are disabled or who suffer from chronic medical conditions.

Directions
Love the example of a piece of clothing giving you haptic cues for navigating a new place. Hadn't heard that one. Imagine that, combined with google maps, would appeal to many people visting NYC or Boston, for example. You can't be looking at your iphone every two seconds.

Re: wearables
@PedroG Yes, there's amazing potential there. And having the sensors built into clothes makes them less obtrusive than having them in bulky plastic strapped to one's wrist.

wearables
The wearables built into fabric do more than show off a cool gadget. They are used to enhance safety in sports and to keep people monitored without restricting their movements, which is a very good thing for those at risk of a heart attack or other such health hazard.
