I’m worn out by wear­able tech­nol­ogy

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - Opinion -

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.
