Life has changed a lot in the last few years as new technology has been introduced into our lives, improving and changing our day to day journeys through life. A number of sectors have been affected by this revolution , we are seeing changes in health, banking, energy and even fashion. For example products like t-shirts, bras and watches have evolved into heart monitors, sports sensors and gps trackers, which has birthed a whole new niche that we now know as “Fashion/Tech”.
This is a booming new industry and is merging some traditionally unlinked disciplines together as programmers, engineers and designers come together to create technological enhancements to our lives that are also aesthetically pleasing and comfortable to wear.
