I agree with you, Mydesign. More and more tech is becoming integrated into clothing and also more practical and even health-oriented. I just wrote a story aobut a medical device that can be worn to combat chronic pain. I definitely agree there is a lot of innovation in this area, as this slideshow shows, and competitions are one way to inspire people.

I have no idea what I would do with a FloraBrella, but it sure looks cool. Reminds me of the old "Brock-a-Brella" hat that people used to wear to baseball games.

I agree, Naperlou. I can certainly see a future where people with chronic health issues such as diabetes or heart conditions will wear monitors to indicate whether the body's chemistry or functions have slipped out of norm.

Rob, I think you are correct.  While the slideshow has a lot of interesting and "flashy" items, I don't really see a lot of people wearing them.  As I look around, sitting in a public place, that people are wearing more dark colors and less flash.  Medical devices are a really good use of this technology, especially if it can be used for wellness purposes.

I believe that wearable tech will really take off as more medical applications are developed. With an aging population, many of us will be wearing a bunch of monitors.

Elizabeth, there is no doubt that wearable devices are going to make a trend in market. As of now this segment is in its childhood stage and most of the innovations are yet to happen. I think such design contests will help enthusiastic peoples to express their ideas and designs for an open discussion.

Bluefruit EZ-Link - Bluetooth Serial Link & Arduino Programmer - v1.0

Among few product bluetooth serial link is a great one it has

,The Bluefruit EZ-Link is a regular 'SPP' serial link client device, that can pair with any computer or tablet and appear as a serial/COM port (except iOS as iOS does not permit SPP pairing). But here is where it gets exciting: unlike any other BT module,the EZ-Link can automatically detect and change the serial baud rate. That means if you open up the COM port on your computer at 9600 baud, the output is 9600, 57600? 57600. Yep even 2400. All the most common baud rates are supported: 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200 and 230400. You never have to configure or customize the module by hand - it all happens completely automatically inside the RF module.
