10 weirdest and coolest wearable tech ideas that surfaced and disappeared

10 weirdest and coolest wearable tech ideas that surfaced and disappeared

A report on Wearable Intelligence once wrote, “At any given moment, a large number of people are gathering, filtering and organizing the information that he requires. Wearables will essentially perform the same function for all the rest of us. They will be our ‘personalizer’ for the Internet of Things.”

With such confidence in wearable tech becoming the personalizer for the Internet of Things, it’s no wonder that a new wearable tech device is launched almost every month. Yet, even at such high speeds of innovation within the wearable tech scene, many of these have also unfortunately surfaced and disappeared (or haven’t updated the Internet world for a while). Some of these are absolutely brilliant ideas, while others have disappeared for good reason. You be the judge!
