Caption

Computerised clothing. Fashion model wears compu- terised "smart clothes". This Lingua Trekka outfit translates speech. Microphones in the neckline detect the words. Speech recognition software understands them & plays an instantaneous transla- tion through speakers near her ears. The chest pieces are equipped with a computer screen & key- board. The clothing is powered by a battery in her backpack. This demonstrates how "smart clothes" can continuously respond to a wearer's environment. Such clothes may soon have widespread practical applications. The outfit was a collaboration bet- ween researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, & international fashion designers.
