    Wearable Tech: Tech, Fashion, Art, All of the Above or None of the Above? Is Wearable Tech just a toy to engineers or does it have a function?

      Okay, you have me rolling on that one!  I live footsteps from just such a collection of armor and you are absolutely right about the craftsmanship when it comes to the military.  Certainly the history of wearables has much to do with the military. I know one of my inspirations for learning about this stuff was when I met someone working on a military project creating conductive fabric that would allow embedded sensors for toxic gases, heart monitors and the like.
