Author of Fashioning Technology Syuzi Pakhchyan scoured the World Maker Faire NY schedule and posted a great roundup of the wearable tech projects to be on display, like Vital Threads Biofeedback Apparel (above left), the Life Dress (above right), and of course Diana Eng‘s Maker Faire Fashion Show (on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Great Hall). Rest assured there will be no shortage of wearable tech this weekend at the New York Hall of Science!

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
