Send out not so subtle messages.

  I can see where these things would be tremendous for young ladies who frequent club scenes and other such venues. When some bore refuses to pick up on subtle messages designed to convey, "Back off." The wearer could turn on a red light that even a fool would understand.

Yes, well, this is the natural progression of technology usually, isn't it, MyDesign? Usually someone invents something to solve a particular problem, so for a particular function. Then other people realize the technology is quite cool just for the sake of itself and begin innovating with it. I am not sure necessarily clothes need to be so high-tech merely for aesthetics' sake, but it is interesting to think about.

"It seems inevitable that as wearable technology progresses, designers would find a way to make it not just functional, but simply for innovations in aesthetics."

Elizabeth, you are right that technology is progressing and one day we can see an integrated technology with wearable devices having charging point over cloths.

It seems inevitable that as wearable technology progresses, designers would find a way to make it not just functional, but simply for innovations in aesthetics. This seems similar to something I covered recently about a see-through cello that integrates electronics and light shows into a musical instrument, not necessarily for sound but for a new visual experience: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=267810

I suspect we will see quite alot more of this in the future.

I've seen this before at a trade show here in San Francisco years ago.  It may have been SPIE, I can't remember.  As you walked in, the greeters were wearing plain white t-shirts that had an LED message "Ask me".  When they same people were needed for line control, the message read, "follow me".

Lots of people were very interested in the technology, it wasn't bulky and didn't drape any differently than a normal t-shirt.  I wonder if it's the same company.

"We tend to think of wearable computing as providing a function rather than being purely aesthetic, pleasing to the eye, or the latest in fashion."

Cabe, apart from wearable devices, how this wearable computing is different or both are same.
