These Technologies That Will Change Lives For Better, Or For Worse

They are all coming to exemplify the future that we all fantasise about. From uber-powerful computing, greener and non-exhaustive resources sources of energy, fabric bound electronics to digitally enhanced clothing. The following upcoming technologies will only amplify the goodness technology has to offer to mankind, or may be not.

Digitally Enriched Apparel

A lot to express eh?

Beginning with a technology that will soon enable you to wear cloths, that flashes digital texts and animations. Like any brilliant idea, it has its own quirks. Digitally enhanced T-Shirts can effectively be used to socialize and communicate non-verbally by flashing smart animations. On the evil side, it could effectively be used to advertise. Just think about the ‘get paid to wear’ campaigns!
