The Latest in Back-to-School Fashion?

Posted August 31, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Smart kids (and adults, too!) may just be sporting "smart" clothes — if not this September, then soon. Researchers predict the smart clothing market, deemed the "next generation of wearables," will top 18 million clothing articles annually by 2021.
Some of the most practical? A jacket will incorporate sensor grids on the sleeve that allow wearers to control certain smartphone apps, and safety clothing will integrate LED lighting that looks like a runner or bicyclist. Technology on the horizon includes cost-efficient sensors printed directly on textiles. Transparent, flexible, and as thin as human hair, the sensors would permit more freedom in smart garment design.

Ha...there aren't a lot of people that want to walk around flashing like a neon sign....unless that shirt will tell them the answers to the test the're taking, or get them paid for advertising ala Idiocracy, then I just don't see it happening....Maybe for little kids or gag gifts...but what do I know, I thought rap music was a flash in the pan....

Hey Iron man....that's cool
