Augmented Apparel

We have a tendency to incorporate circuitry into devices. By 2050 the improvements in miniaturization, production cost, and durability will have extended this to most clothing, either interwoven into garments or as routine accessories like buttons or belts. It will be fairly normal for cameras, data storage, wifi & phone antennas, and even limited power production & storage to be worn rather than carried, such a micro-solar panels built into clothes or generators tapping body motion. Combined with Augmented Reality and Cloud Computing, this would mean most people carried their computer and interface with them, and those interfaces would begin to switch away from keyboard, mouse, and touchpad to speech, body gestures, and eye motions. Sensor packets built into the garments would heavily enhance medical monitoring, remote control of drones & devices, and allow constant recording of day to day events, with an additional positive effect on emergencies involving accidents & crime, as well as search engines devoted to indexing and searching those recorded “Second Memories”.
