We have been at Wired's Nextfest 2004 as reported and after publishing the first summary and photo gallery we are now publishing several stories about interesting future technology we saw at the show.
Arizona State University (ASU) displayed wearable biometric fashion. The outfit shown in the photo is supposed to evovle to a "wellness" or personal health garment. The outfit uses electronics and fluidics to capture the wearers environment and vital signs. "What we have shown is the concept of an outfit that could easily deliver a fragrance in response to some type of elevated human condition, like body temperature or heart rate." Frederic Zenhausern, Director of Applied NanoBioScience Center at ASU explains.
ASU also showed the same technology applied to military camouflage outfits.
