More Robo Wear

Fashion technology has been on popping up in different venues, made prevalent by their scientific materials and even more scientific names. Newest on the list: piezoelectric material, born by Amanda Parkes at Piezing. Debuted in tech-Hollywood, San Francisco, the pieces include electricity-generated fabrics around the body's elbow joints and hips. Mechanical stress energy charged through movement turns into stored voltage via built in batteries, which can later be used to charge your phone, iPod, or electric razor (useful because you never know when you'll need to shave on the go). Thanks for the tip tech-loving blogger Megan
