Wearing tech: Where fashion meets technology

Wearing tech: Where fashion meets technology

Wearable technology isn't magic, Orth notes.

Dunne adds, "Long-term acceptance of wearable technology depends a lot more on what it has to offer users than on the prevailing fashion trends. Trends come and go-wearables ideally would gain acceptance more like other gadgets than like a fashion trend. You wouldn't say that the personal computer "trend" is likely to end anytime soon-that's more of what we're aiming for."

Over time, engineers are learning to take garment construction more seriously as a craft, Seymour says. Yet, she adds, both designers and engineers need to have an "understanding and mutual authority" for the field to reach its full potential.
