"human beings soon to be more stupid than anything they wear"

Soon, subby?  You must not encounter the people I deal with on a daily basis.

FFS all I want is a flying or at least self-driving car. I DO NOT WANT SHOES THAT TELL ME HOW TO RUN OR A CAR THAT LETS ME TURN ON THE WIPERS BY WAVING MY HAND.

And Back to the Future makes another correct prediction.

Of course, what I'm really waiting for is the double-necktie look to come into fashion.

Considering that most humans have to buy their clothing and have no idea how to make it, I'd say that's already the case subby.

How about smart colostomy bags that will automatically update Twitter and Facebook whenever the digestive tract has been evacuated? We need that. Or smart polo shirts that will take in cues from the environment and alert the wearer of the appropriate time to pop the collar.

I wouldn't want yet another device that needs charging. At this point work needs to be done on device batteries that can hold a charge over days of use.

As long as there are stupid people, there will be stupid clothes.

Ok, I think that's actually pretty awesome.

I'm WAY ahead of you, subby.

My flipflops already have more processing power than I do.

Simpsons did it.

Remember when Grandpa Simpson can't remember his first name?

Grampa: "Alright, lets see, first name, first name. Well, whenever I'm confused, I just check my underwear. It holds the answers to all the important questions. Call me Abraham Simpson."

Lisa: "Grampa, how'd you take off your underwear without taking off your pants?"

Grampa: "I don't know!"

From this book  http://bitsofbooks.com/bizarre-bras.html



Shop clerk: Hey, Marge. Have we any of the  Noli Me Tangere bras in a D-cup?

Marge: Prickly pear or desert thorn?

Shop clerk:
 Prickly Pear!

Marge:
 We're out. How about some of the new African Thorny Acacia corsets with symbiotic ants? They'll keep the mashers off of your whole torso.

As Douglas Adams observed, everything you could possibly want grows naturally some where in this big ole universe of ours. Once the novelty wears off of wearable computing, look out for wearable genetic engineering, biologicals, and symbionts.

I think subby's ignoring the fact that 99% of the folks you meet can and are outwitted by a tube sock with 2 holes in it or an empty suit.

If we can add a holographic projector to the collar of those clothes we can just project an image
of ourselves inside the clothes.  The clothes can take the test (or do a life sentence) for us while
we do the gulp and fark at the local nude bar & beach.
