The digital and physical worlds have started to integrate more seamlessly; computers have become more aware of the physical world, to adapting humans to become more at home in the virtual world, As Seamlessly as The term ‘wearable computing’. Wearables have become the norm of today, as technology embedded its way on how we go about our daily business, professionally as well as personally in an unobtrusive manner fit as a natural body extension. Thus, augmenting and extending our sensory capabilities.


Walking around Dubai city’s harsh summer weather have become easier for the first time with wearable made of Conductive threads – cotton coated in nanoparticles and polymers – that weaves the transistors and circuits of a computer together that will literally be part of the fabric of our clothes. Theses threads use temperature and humidity sensors to measure outdoor or indoor ambient and skin temperatures to regulate our temperature, and change their properties based on the weather. In addition to increased comfort, energy is consumed only when needed, leading to cutting energy costs as well as promoting walkability and lowered traffic congestion.


Today more people than ever suffer from a severe sensory impairment. Wearable computing is no doubt of great assistance to visually impaired pedestrians; a context-aware computer would be able to fill in information not available to a person lacking a visual sense. However, how to present the information to the user is a problem that calls for some attention. The most obvious possible interfaces for turning alteration would provide feedback through sound or some form of physical feedback. That is, the voice provided the user with messages like 1 o’clock or 10 o’clock. The physical response was a “shoulder-tapping” device using a matrix of pads tapping lines on the users back pointing towards the destination


Conveying information through one sensory network to another does not only benefit people with sensory disorders. There are some situations where fully functional human senses are not sufficient for the given task. A Civil Defense firefighter to locate heat source, and low oxygen zones. A plane aviator may want to see the situation of the landing strip in the dark.


The fact that technology ends up in the periphery of human consciousness may also lead to the additional problem. The wearable computer loads so slight responsiveness from us that we can participate directly in works and activities without becoming entwined in the tool that assists us to do so. the concept of wearable computers places technology in the background, it will not be clear to us what is being perceived by computers and what is the outcome of human thought.
