Fashion = Tech

In the future, there will be no difference between fashion and technology… Just as there will be no difference between engineering and biology. Our most important technologies will become the things that we wear. It’s already happening in myriad instances. For example, the sixth sense technology “necklace” and digital “hand map”: http://www.pranavmistry.com/projects/sixthsense/, and high-tech biological tracking “bracelets”: https://jawbone.com/up. And fashion has been quick to jump into integration with wearable technology: http://www.wearable-technologies.com/2014/04/endless-fashion-week/. I’m trying to predict some possibilities of this fashion-technology fusion in my sci-fi book. These technologies will increasingly become devices that interact and merge with our human biology. They will be devices that can predict and prevent illness and morph to protect us from temperature and environmentally harsh conditions.
