Fashion victims, beware trustworthy computing

Infineon demonstrates "a jacket with a voice controlled MP3 player, and the garment can even be washed. A number of other manufacturers are also demonstrating "wearable" electronics including Hitachi, Philips (which showed us a computer on a tie 12 years ago), and IBM. Security firms are also interested in the textile chip technology.
