Wearables

I have not invested in the wearable space.  I just believe that many of the items we see now are just stepping stones to something much larger.  Doesn’t mean that there is not a lot of opportunity along the way but I can’t help but think where we will be in 10 years.  My guess is we will all own a little chip, similar to the ones in our phone, which we can put into any item we are wearing be it a watch, a shirt, a necklace or a shoe and will have data on our phone based on our desires to see information about ourselves that we can gather as we move that small chip from one item to the next.

I saw this item on Denzeen this morning.  Makes me wonder about fabrics and where they are moving as well.  I have seen a variety of wearable items but this is different.

New York designer Nikolas Bentel has developed a range of shirts that change color in response to air pollution or radioactivity.

I have to say that is pretty damn cool.
