"intelligent' clothing is all the rage for futurists. Lets use some of that computng power to detect things our clothes feel (wind, rain, caresses) and have them reproduced (maybe modified) on the skin beneath (or wherever!). parents could have their childrens clothes mapped to an area on themselves, so they could keep tabs by radio link.

       I thought this idea was going to be about emotional clothing.   

       Well, I suppose if it rained and your pants got wet it would give the sensation that you've just pissed yourself.

       "parents could have their childrens clothes mapped to an area on themselves, so they could keep tabs by radio link."   

       I can see this part going very badly. I don't want my mom feeling EVERYTHING that I feel.   

       minus that part this sounds like it could be fun. bun
