I’m worn out by wearable technology
Watches that tell you how far you’ve walked, how full your fridge is, the room temperature and even how to improve your golf swing – but not the time.
Welcome to the evergrowing, very depressing world of wearable tech.
And at the top of the must-have gizmo list is Levi’s new £260 Jacquard.
A high-tech denim “smart” jacket woven with computer thread that allows the wearer, by touching the cuffs, to connect to their phone.
What if you happen to wipe your nose on the sleeve, is the game a bogey with your text?
What really has me in stitches about this piece of wearable smart tech is that it’s not so smart.
You can only wash them a maximum of 10 times before they fizzle out and you need to buy a new one. Equally, when it rains, could you be electrocuted?
Who designed them – Wallace and Gromit?
Except it’s not a pair of Wrong Trousers they’ve come up with, but the Wrong Jacket.
