The Alert Shirt is a whole new piece of wearable tech, designed for Australian football fans with a love of the game. Put together as a collaboration between Wearable Experiments and broadcasting company Foxtel, the shirt is equipped with various sensors so that users can know exactly how a player is feeling throughout the game.

These sensations range from the increased beating of a player's heart, to the hits he receives on the field. Granted, users will not feel the full brunt of a 200-pound man hitting another, but they will feel various impulses when these collisions occur.

A new way to get closer to the action, the Alert Shirt makes fans feel one with the players.
