Clothing Basics Double As Non-Invasive Health Monitors
Mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo and material manufacturer Toray are working on a line of clothes that can read your vitals and connect them to your mobile device.
Wearable technology is one of the fastest developing fields in the last few years, with watches, headsets, and even contact lenses able to read vitals and relay them back to our phones.

Japanese mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo and chemical company Toray are collaborating on a new set of health-m0nitoring clothes, called Hitoe (meaning “one layer”).
