<p>Increased research in microelectronics, wireless communications, and human computerinteraction—particularly augmented-reality applications?has made a symbiotic system technically feasible. Wearable computing, or wearware, focuses on making this technology useful in everyday life, particularly for integrating contextual data with the Internet to automate mundane tasks.</p><p>The availability of portable, energy efficient computing devices that can be easily integrated with clothing has renewed interest in the possibilities of wearware.

Consumers are notinterested in the technology per se but in how it could enrich their lives.</p>
