Researchers build what they envision as wearable computers

Abstract:
The next frontier for microelectronics may be clothing, according to an Arizona State University researcher who is trying to merge technology with fashion. Frederic Zenhausern, director of the Applied NanoBioscience Center at ASU, has joined with Ghassan Jabbour, a professor at the University of Arizona, to develop two prototypes of "biometric bodysuits" that contain embedded sensors, power sources, microfluidic devices and other gadgets not normally associated with the latest Paris fashions.
