Is Wearable Technology Going Mainstream?

You know wearable technology is literally en vogue when Vogue writes about the potentially worth $1.6 trillion nerdy chic industry.

The world is becoming increasingly more connected and more personal, as seen in the below not too-far-off fictional video.

According to Elings:

“Smart clothing had the biggest potential for growth of all the different wearables types—moving from virtually zero sales in 2014 to 26 million items in 2016.”
