Abstract

There was a time when 'smart attire' was simply a dress code—a happy medium between formal and informal clothes.

But as technological advancements continue to change our lives, the clothes and accessories we wear are increasingly embedded with smart technology.

Wearable technology is nothing new, if you cast your mind back to the popular calculator watch of the '80s.

But as more advanced products like Apple Watch and FitBit become mainstream, a new exhibition in Brisbane asks what's next for wearable technology.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
