Wearing Technology

Picking up where we left off yesterday, here we have an MRI machine.

A camera was set up to allow the passerby to see a very different view of themselves- in this case, if you were flayed alive. Only without the horrendous level of pain of that actually happening.

Here we have a large space that was geared more towards younger kids.

Moving on, the theme became wearable technology. It included a display case with items from the Canadian Olympic wrestler Erica Wiebe, who won the gold medal at the 2016 Olympics.

This shirt is a biometric shirt. It is designed to give athletes data they would get from a performance lab without the inconvenience of being hooked up to monitors.

The Newtsuit is a deep sea diving suit, a Canadian innovation.

Amauti is the term for an Inuit parka worn by women, with the oversized hood featuring a pouch for carrying babies in. This one blends traditional design with some contemporary materials. 

The traditional cowboy boot is side by side with this WWII era pilot boot liner, which was designed to plug into a plane's electrical system and keep the pilot's feet warm.

Here we have quite a mix of helmets.

And it's not just people who wear technology. These red tinted glasses prevent chickens from seeing blood on each other, reducing the chance of pecking in a flock. Looks stylish too.


  1. I love the Kids Room and the Chickens Red Glasses !
    What a hoot.

  2. Wow, all interesting, but especially the last one.

  3. The chicken with the glasses is beautiful!
    Poor chicken ... hey still ended up in the soup pot! :)

  4. Well William I can be proud to say I worked for the company that built the first Body scanners, every one else just followed, might add I saw the first one and itwas nothing like we have now

  5. Hello, I am thankful for all past inventions and for what is available today. The chicken wearing glasses, that is interesting. Wishing you a happy day!

  6. Gotta love the cowboy boot. I love the Amauti too or at least the general look of it if not the baby part.

  7. ...a MIR is something that I've never needed, thankfully!

  8. @Parsnip: I do too.

    @Italiafinlandia: definitely.

    @Iris: I think so too.

    @Ella: that's true!

    @Francisco: thanks!

    @Bill: small world!

    @Eileen: thank you.

    @Anvilcloud: I've seen Inuit women wearing those, with the baby in the pouch.

    @Marie: it certainly is.

    @Tom: me neither.

  9. Oh, I had to laugh at the chicken specs. Perfectly stylish. I also like that Inuit parka with room for a baby. :-)

  10. I like your new header William. I had no idea there was wearable technology. The chicken specks, how funny is that?

  11. There certainly more things about clothes than I ever knew. I've had an MRI. It's kind of spooky. I've lived where women wore amautis.

  12. This is so cool. I really love the Amauti -- although I might be a little freaked carrying three babies on my head!

  13. I wonder if anyone can move wearing the deep sea diving suit :)

  14. What a variety of items you've shown us. I never heard of those glasses for chickens and I've spent one too many times inside an MRI machine.

  15. @DJan: you wonder what the chickens think of them.

    @Jennifer: so do I.

    @Sami: most of us wear at least something that qualifies as technology- a watch, an HID pass, that sort of thing.

    @Red: I knew you'd have been familiar with the amauti.

    @Jeanie: I've seen mothers with a single baby in them.

    @Marleen: pretty easily, actually.

    @Sharon: I found all of this neat.

  16. I love the Inuit parka. What a nice parka it is.

  17. MRI has become such a helpful technology for the medical community.

  18. The red glasses for chickens made me laugh. It's a whole new world out there. Tweeted.

  19. Hühner mit Brille das ist klasse.


  20. Unique apparel ^_^

    Happy Day to You,

  21. very cool outfits ... i found a new blogger update ... when i was setting up my hubby's new boat remodeling blog and it did change how i see comments ... i usually click those comments to get over to your blog .. what a change. i wonder if that change will happen for every blogger (google) soon enough? weird. but i think i can get use to it? we will see?? have a great 25th! ( ;

  22. What self-respecting chicken would wear those specs!

  23. @Aritha: it is.

    @Michelle: it has.

    @Mari: quite true.

    @Noke: thank you.

    @Carol: indeed!

    @RedPat: it must be quite a sight.

    @Beth: thank you!

    @Catalyst: you'd wonder!

  24. It's incredible how far technology has advanced

  25. Technology has advanced to mind boggling levels!

  26. Glasses for chickens?! That's a new one for me.

  27. William - fascinating display on wearable technology. The glasses for chickens was a new one for me. I guess pecking must be a big deal for that to be worthwhile! Also, I like the new header on your blog!

  28. Glasses for chickens! Who knew?

    That's a spectacular view on your header.

  29. That's really funny all these special outfits, especially the chicken ! I just imagine a whole chicken coop with these "glasses" !

  30. It's great to see how modern technology plays a roll in health and other aspects in daily life

  31. @Happyone: indeed.

    @Bill: that's true.

    @Joanne: plug in boots are too much?

    @Magiceye: very much so.

    @Kay: new to me too.

    @Angie: thank you!

    @Linda: who indeed.

    @Gattina: it would be weird!

    @Jan: it is, yes.

  32. Fascinating William although.. the chicken wearing glasses did make me smile 😊

  33. Fascinating display, I think I'd avoid the 'flaying' machine though:)

  34. Not that I've had one but the MRI scanners are amazing.

    All the best Jan

  35. Interesting!! I have never heard of boot liners that the pilots had...
