Wouldn’t it be good if one of your friends could give you a relaxing massage any time a day? Supposing your clothes are so smart they can measure if you need a treatment? A new trend called wearable technology makes your clothing smart by adding electronics to the garment or textile. e-Pressed is a wearable. This garment measures the stress level of the wearer through sensors and displays it on the garment. Areas, originating from acupressure therapy and massage are applied to the garment. They invite bystanders to interact with the garment and help the wearer with a treatment.
