From the ASEE aggregator.  This is the American Association of Engineering Educators…nice to see that we are noticed north of the border, too, with emerging technologies!  Although this one is intriguing, it is also a little unnerving:  it reminds me of “The Game” from Star Trek, the Next Generation.
The Canadian Press  (1/10, Luk) reports that an e-textiles project at the University of British Columbia will receive funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Electrical and computer engineering associate professor Peyman Servati, who is leading the research, said wearable technology is becoming more popular as consumers become more reliant on “smart” devices.
After I wrote this post, I googled “the Game” and found that I remembered it correctly.  I watched it when it was a newly released episode.  That’s a long time ago!  It obviously made a big impact on me that I should so clearly remember it so many years later.
