ALL-IN-ONE TRACKING: Wearer’s location can be tracked via NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS

A prototype “onesie” jumpsuit has been developed that enables the location of the wearer to be tracked and can communicate using built-in NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

The BB.Suit was unveiled at SXSW 2014 and is the result of a collaboration between fabric brand ByBorre, Eindhoven University of Technology, music platform 22Tracks, Crisp, Daan Spangenberg Graphics and online magazine Want.

“This suit is to show that wearable technology will be the future,” Want says. “A future where people wearing hi-tech clothes is the most natural thing in the world.”
