There was a time when all we expected from our clothes was to preserve our modesty, protect us from the elements and pull in a few curves. Not any more.
If the Siggraph 2007 exhibition of future fashions in San Diego is anything to go by, your wardrobe will soon charge your iPod, convey hidden messages, light your home and act as a video game console. Get ready for clothes infused with electronic gadgets and computers that can help you in your daily life - or just give you a laugh.
