Wearable technology is an upcoming concept that is gradually gaining acceptance in the mainstream fashion world with more and more new generation tech-savvy designers coming up with path breaking inventions by combining the benefits of latest technology with apparels.
 
One of the recent breakthrough innovations is the Wearable Solar powered clothing, created by Dutch fashion designer Pauline van Dongen. Made using wool and leather, the two revolutionary outfits, a coat and a dress, are embedded with rigid and flexible solar cells, which when exposed to sunlight for an hour or so can store enough energy to charge a smartphone by 50 percent. 
 
Another award-winning Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde, form the Netherlands-based Studio Roosegaarde, has invented a provocative dress called Intimacy 2.0, which becomes transparent when the wearer’s heart rate increases. Incorporated with smart electronic foils wired with LEDs, the leather crafted outfits are infused with sensors that are capable of detecting body temperature and heart rate changes due to reactions sprung from human emotions like fear, excitement and anxiety.
 
One more new record breaking creation is the BB.Suit, a quilted loose-fitting overall which can double up as a Wi-Fi hotspot, designed by byBorre brand. The wire, electronics and fabric infused internet network providing baggy jumpsuit can be connected to iPads and other contemporary smart devices. 
 
The increasing popularity of wearable technology can also be gazed from the recently wrapped up inaugural edition of Wearable Technology Conference and Expo in London. Along with the display of freshly innovated smart garments, the event also hosted several talks on topics like the integration and convergence of sensor technology in fashion, how devices and sensors can interact with and become part of fashion itself as well as the key driving forces behind smart clothing.
