In the next few years, we might be filling our closets with smart shirts that can read our heart rate and breathing, and musical jackets with built in all-fabric keypads. How interesting will that be.

Using conductive fibers, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or MIT Media Lab created the Musical Jacket shown above , which is being marketed by Levi in Europe.

The digital age will soon give us computerised clothes. You walk into a room and the room will light up. You can carry your laptop on your body without any extra weight if you will only wear your electronic shirt.
