16 futuristic fashion pieces that will make you feel like you're living in the movie "The Fifth Element"
The future is now for technology and fashion. Google and Levi’s smart jacket is expected to launch by the end of the year and we are already seeing an influx of smart bags on the market. By now, most of us have seen a charging phone case or a sleek external battery, but what about a phone-charging purse or keychain? Since technology is becoming more and more entwined with our everyday lives, of course it would be integrated with the things we regularly wear!
From social media, to snapping pictures, to ordering a car or dinner, our phones have become a command center of sorts. We don’t only rely on our cells, we also incorporate laptops, tablets, watches, and fitness trackers. With the help of app and cloud-syncing, it is easier than ever to stay connected. Scary AND cool, all at the same time.
With hidden lights, chargers, activity tracking and vibrating notifications, these tech fashion gadgets make us feel like we are living in a spy movie…or The Fifth Element!
Here are 17 tech fashion pieces that are straight from the future!
