The state of wearables seems to be divided into two contrasting design ideas: the visible and the subtle.
On one side, wearable tech is futuristic and cool, and the design of objects should reflect that. At the other end of the spectrum, “Glassholes” are very real, so subtlety is key.
For those of us slightly embarrassed by our more techie side, there are plenty of concealed wearables on the market and in production now. These devices give you all the lifelogging and data tracking abilities of their more visible peers, but aren’t readily identifiable to the untrained eye.
Take a look through our gallery of hidden wearables, buy a pair of smart undies and go about your day without judgment, you freaky futurist, you.
