New Wearable Keyboards Could Be Sewn into Clothing

I’m going out on a limb here & assuming that wearable keyboards & whatever peripherals are developed later can survive a sudden shower, being pushed into a pool ( how many of us have had smart – phone damage due to a cell phone plopping into a sink ? ) a spill from a bike, chopper, skateboard, etc. ?

Doubts re. : durability aside, this does sound interesting. A novel by Larry Niven once mentioned shirts with LCD displays in the sleeves, so maybe it’s not so far – fetched.

” May you ( we ! ) live in interesting times ” is a phrase I may adopt as a tagline !

Researchers have developed wearable keyboards made of electronics knitted together like fabric that could lead to a new kind of human-machine interface.

    1. It’s hard to tell – Back in the 50’s, a smart – phone or even the 1st cell – phones would’ve seemed like something straight of a sci – fi story. A flat screen tv would’ve been like something from Star Trek or ” The Jetsons “.
      If time travel were somehow possible, & a technologist could leave a contemporary computer chip with a technologist / designer from the 40’s or 50’s, history would be changed ( I know, I get carried away. 🙂 ).

  1. My friend recently received a gift that featured gloves with Bluetooth compatibility for the iPhone. I’m not sure how it works but it certainly presents a situation where technology becomes more and more integrated with our body.
