SOFTWEAR UP­GRADE

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - The Everest -

FROM test­ing your blood al­co­hol limit dur­ing a big night out to cool­ing you down on a sum­mer’s day, wear­able tech­nol­ogy is get­ting more ad­vanced, more use­ful — and se­ri­ously wacky.

The tech­nol­ogy now fea­tures in ev­ery­thing from the cuffs of denim jackets to por­ta­ble breast pumps, and even hides in­side rose gold jew­ellery. Re­search firm IDC re­cently found wear­able tech­nol­ogy had jumped in pop­u­lar­ity again this year, with con­sumers buy­ing 26.3 mil­lion de­vices be­tween April and June, up more than 10 per cent.
