Computerised clothing. Fashion model wears comput- erised "smart clothes". This Museum Guide System outfit is operated by pointing the ring at the label of a museum exhibit. The wearer hears det- ails about it through her headphones. A computer database also provides information if this exhibit is related to one she has seen before. The compu- ter can also direct her to exhibits in the museum which will be of particular interest to her. This shows how "smart clothes" can continuously cater for a user's needs. Such clothes may soon be used widely. This outfit was a collaboration between researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, & international fashion designers.
