wearablesplashWelcome to the Future

When Marty McFly donned power-lacing shoes and a self-drying jacket in Back to the Future Part II, geeks everywhere gushed with excitement. Fast-forward 20 years to today, though, and that futuristic fashion is almost a reality. All right, so the auto-lacers aren’t here yet–but they weren’t supposed to debut till 2015. Plenty of other high-tech attire is actually available or under development right now, and you don’t even need a DeLorean to track it down.

Grab your hoverboard and get ready: We’re going on a journey to see the wildest wearable gadgets around. And–it probably goes without saying–where we’re going, we don’t need roads.

    Don’t get too dependent. Most of this won’t work well at Rooster Rock park.

    Wow the USB shirt is ridiculous. $222?? I could make the same exact thing for $50 or less.

  5. Doh! Says:

    Your link on the home page goes to the Radio Shack swhuld not change it’s name page.

    Not too bad for a tech site…..

    Wait, no, fail….

    But don’t mind the slide show at all…..

    @tron… but that’s one way to make money. every time you click next, the page loads anew and the website receives a new “impression” and the ads are delivered anew… etc.
    Usability is often not the main concern of website publishers, when they have to make a living off of their site ^_^

    Um….couldn’t they make it a little more fashionable? Great idea but really, I wouldn’t want to look like a fisherman all the time.
