Wearable technologies have attracted such escalating interestsfrom both  manufacturers and consumers that some experts predict they will be “asbig as the  smart phone”. Given the wide coverage by and extreme intimacybetween the human  body and clothing, the potential for wearable technologiesindeed seems  overwhelming.

For wearable technologies to gain success in today’s environmenthowever, it  is of critical importance to explore and understand the causes orreasons behind  the seemingly eternity of our clothing form up to now, despitetremendous  advances in both materials and fabrication, and previous failedattempts in  transforming it. Textilescientists are destined for providing the guidance or  answers in this regard.

This talk identifies and analyzes themajor technical and non-technical  issues, to explain how our current formof clothing satisfies simultaneously so  many – some seemingly mutuallyexclusive and demanding – requirements, to  haveserved us so well for so long; why any attempt to deviate from the  vitalrequirements discussed here will inevitably cause severe deterioration  ofclothing performance and deter its consumer acceptance, and finally why  searching for a new form of cloth is so difficult, ifpossible.

Wearable technologies are hence believed most likely to penetrate firstinto  the markets, as is, where performance and added functionality are criticalsuch  as in the military, sports, medical fields, and under extreme conditions,  e.g.firefighting and polar explorers. Various other applications will only  becomeintegrated into everyday clothing after the technical and business  issuesdiscussed are resolved and proven.
