Sony raises the stakes in wearable technology with ‘SmartWig’ plans (is it April 1st?)


The Japanese firm has made an application in the US for a ‘wearable computer device, comprising a wig that is adapted to cover at least part of a head of a user’.

The device would feature a sensor, a processor and a communication device, which would all be ‘at least partly covered by the wig in order to be visually hidden during use’.

Sony says the wig could be used to monitor the wearer’s brainwaves, blood pressure or pulse, or even combined with ‘artificial muscles’ so that ‘if the user is excited, the hair dynamically changes’.
