Wearable technology has become one of the most significant advancements in both the technology and fashion industries. Today, many people wear a range of technology including watches, glasses, and other accessories. While these gadgets are already popular, it is likely to become only more popular in the coming years.
One way that technology is going to meet fashion is when it comes to active wear. For those that like to ride a bike, it can seem unfashionable to wear a helmet and other pads, even when they are helpful for safety purposes. In the coming years, it is likely that some advancements in technology will make safety features on the bike and on the rider even more discrete than before. A developer is currently working on a neckwear that a biker would wear while riding. When an accident occurs, this will act as an airbag and will work by protecting both the neck and head.
Those that work as firefighters, wearable technology could also become very helpful and help search and rescue team members save lives. The technology that is being proposed is an advanced glove technology that will come full equipped with a GPS, communication ability, and other components that will help firefighters find each other while on a search and rescue mission.
Technology is also being used to recycle old items into clothing. One company has been collecting and recycling bicycle inner tubes and have found a way to convert the items into clothing. The developer is also looking to expand their search in an attempt to recycle other items into clothes.
