Clothes, belt buckles, and rings that collect information and turn it into data visualizations or creates a physical output are also considered Wearable Tech!  Wearable tech is the hottest thing in technology today bringing together programming with “the Internet of Things” to allow you to be a designer and a maker relating to STEAM, health, fashion and much more.
