Richard Platt's curator insight, May 31, 5:27 PM

Intel is on to the wearable technology craze in a big way. You may remember Intel from making every computer chip ever made, but they are glomming on to making smart shirts.  It will be packed to the gills with sensors that monitor nearly every aspect of your health, from your vital signs to your emotional states. this information can then be beamed to your smartphone, tablet or what have you. A shirt that tracks vitals seems much more convenient then an armband, considering you have to wear a shirt(and shoes) to get service at most businesses. The battery of the shirt doesn’t like to get wet so you’d be tasked with removing it before doing laundry.
