From Connected Pedestrian Lights to Expressive Printed Masks

 - Oct 21, 2017
The top October 2017 wearable tech ideas include everything from wearable flashlights to pedestrian safety lights, as well as sensor-equipped space boots that have been designed to help with navigation. While smartwatch designs are still prevalent in this sector, innovative wearables of these kinds are emerging as designers explore the technology in many forward-thinking forms.

Both Bose and Sony recently released a new kind of speaker that is meant to be worn around the neck to provide an immersive audio experience. Also within the realm of speakers, EJTECH initiated a 'Soft Sound' project that turns fabrics into functional speakers, which has the potential to create garments that emit sound that can be heard and felt through vibrations.
