How about a disco T-shirt so you are a wearable dance floor? Or what about Minority Report-style gloves which allow you to control video games along with other devices?

Story asked what people would consider their dream wearable technology to be and went to investigate what these students have drummed up in combining technology and gadgets with fashion.
