(up to 500 words)

Human body has several senses to take information from environment. But in critical or eventful situations those are not enough. With development of the information and sensor technology there is an opportunity to include that advance equipment in special clothes that extend humans sense range. Those clothes will have built in actuators which will get active for example when there is an object near the user to warn. Those special clothes will be used in racing sports like F1 or rally. So a driver will know without to look in the mirror there is a vehicle behind him, while actuators will warn him.

Keywords (up to 5)
