Yes, Mydesign, sooner or later, we will see the advantage of wearable technology for medical monitoring -- or even medication delivery.

"I don't think I'm ready for the Internet of People or the Internet of MyBody. But if there are medical advantages in wearable monitoring, I think I'd go for it.'

Rob, may be time will force for that.

Hey MyDesign, I don't think I'm ready for the Internet of People or the Internet of MyBody. But if there are medical advantages in wearable monitoring, I think I'd go for it.

"this is in trend but the thin is these are used for ethical as well as for unethical tins in the market such as spy cams."

Pubudu, we are helpless in that matter. All technologies are for human advancement, but certain peoples are misusing it, what to do.

"More and more tech is becoming integrated into clothing and also more practical and even health-oriented. I just wrote a story about 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."

Elizabeth, you are right, now also medicated patches are available for killing pains. Apart from that insulin pumps are using by diabetic peoples for self injecting insulin based on blood glucose level. What is next?

"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."

Rob, again that going to be another disturbance; wearing too many devices. instead of that, I prefer for just sticking some sensors at various points (legs, body, legs etc)

You make a good point, Battar. I think there is some good innovation happening with integrated energy harvesters in clothes that will make charging small devices quite easy to do when there is no other power source.

This looks like taking well known technology and sewing it into your jacket pocket, with the disadvantage that you need a seperate one in each jacket.  Integrating the technology in your watch, belt or bag makes more sense.

I've seen a backpack with an integral solar powered phone charger. Thats cool. You could probably build that into a belt or baseball cap.

Heated jackets, sweatshirts and socks all sound great for cold winters, especially in parts of the world where it is ridiculously cold, like Wisconsin. I don't live in a place that is nearly as cold, but here in Portugal the houses aren't insulated well and we rely on woodburners to heat them. Wearing heated clothing could really warm things up without using a lot of resources.

Actually now that I think about it, the Florabrella would come in handy in NYC when it rains. Umbrellas become like deadly weapons with everyone fighting for space on the sidewalk. At least people would see you coming!
