Computerised clothing. People with various designs of "smart clothes" which contain sensors that are linked to a portable computer. The computer relays information to the wearer through earphones or by displaying it on the inside of the glasses. The computer can use cameras in the glasses to recog- nise people that the wearer meets. Microphones in the clothes can be used in conjunction with speech recognition software to listen to a conversation. The computer can help the wearer to find their way around with the aid of a navigational sensor. The computers can also access the internet by communicating by radio.
