Technology had embarked on the mission making convenience a necessity rather than a privilege. So if logging onto your Facebook account through laptop or even your phone was “troublesome” we have a piece of tech-enabled cloth that will help you stay connected with your friends without having to use any piece of hardware.
Well, there isn’t any dearth of people who dish out status updates like each spoken sentence in a conversation. So, if you are wearing something that senses what you’re doing and update your “whats-on-your-mind” field, I wonder if a Twitter or a Facebook fan could have asked for more. Hailed as Ping, the social networking garment is designed by Jennifer Darmour. The cloth is engineered to convey comments on your status updates via a tap on your shoulder and even tapping patterns can be customized to different people.
Staying in touch with friends is one thing and letting people have a tab on your pulse is another. Well, it’s more of a personal judgment to set standards for distinguishing networking and intrusion to privacy. No word on pricing and availability.
