When we normally think of wearable tech, we think of what is currently rising in popularity: wrist gadgets.
While this is all well and good, people are curious about other gadgets and the kind of wearable technology that we actually WEAR– as in, clothing. For over 10 years, we’ve watched Tony Stark don the Iron Man Suit and the various iterations.
Tony’s latest nanosuit for IronMan first appeared in Avengers: Infinity War and was a visual delight showing us an amazing future if such nanotechnology becomes available at some point.
Wrapping your body in technology may have captured our collective imaginations, but these are 5 wearable tech innovations (both available and in the near future) that even Iron Man himself would have been proud to call his own and will someday have an inevitable impact on our lives.
1. Lenses 20/20 People Will Someday Be Jealous Of
2. Fabric That Can Change Color Like a Chameleon
3. DuoSkin: Smart Temporary Tattoos
4. Waterproof Fabric That Can Heal Itself?
5. Tencel: Next Level Engineering for Softness and Comfort
Tony Stark most likely wears something like this under all that tech– super soft, breathable underwear made from bleeding edge fabric technology. The company is called Christopher J. Apparel and their flagship product made from Tencel is called The Manhattan and is billed as The Most Comfortable Undershirt You’ll Ever Wear.
Tencel is a fabric that is the result of new technology that is designed to be the most wearable of any on this list–and it’s available right now.
Tencel is incredibly soft and delicate–and the best part? It’s responsibly produced, biodegradable and is created with sustainable and eco-friendly processes. The process also recycles process water and reuses solvents at a recovery rate of more than 99%.
Tencel has been certified as biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions.
It was designed in the USA and currently manufactured in Tempe, Arizona.
