'Smart Clothing' Could Become New Wearable Gadgets Today's ordinary clothing has the untapped power to become tomorrow's wearable electronics. A Canadian lab has tested special fibers that can help make soft, flexible touch screens and batteries woven directly into the fabrics of modern life. Turning rigid electronic parts into stretchy, smart clothing material has not proven easy. But early ideas have already hinted at practical uses beyond just wearing glowing "Tron" jumpsuits as fashion accessories. People may swipe a finger across a car's upholstery to turn down the heat or brush at their coat sleeves to adjust the volume of a connected music player ? experiences that seamlessly blend "hard" gadget functions with "soft" objects.

Monitor firm’s strategy falls into place The advantage to the medical profession, pharmaceuticals companies, the military and professional sports organisations is the ability to take readings on heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and any number of other signals, when a person is actually moving, said Mr Sood. “In hospital, you can collect multiple amounts of data from a patient sitting in a bed, but using a mobile system allows you to put the subject under different kinds of pressure and strain,” he said.

Sizing Wearables' Real Market Potential BI Intelligence Wearables are one of the most exciting new entrants to the consumer electronics market — and also the devices generating a good dose of skepticism. There are an assortment of new gadgets labeled as wearables, including bracelets, smartwatches, and eyewear. Because these devices are designed to be worn close to the body, they're ideal for monitoring how active we are, our sleep quality, how many steps we take during the day. But consumer awareness remains low, and it's still very unclear if these devices will be made available at prices that mainstream consumers find acceptable. In a series of new reports from BI Intelligence, we cut through the muddle of opinions on the wearable computing market — including Google Glass and the smartwatch market — and analyze various growth and price forecasts to arrive at a projection of future market size.
