Ralph Lauren, an unlikely entrant into the wearables market with a different take on the wrist-centric offerings available right now.
…if it’s cyborgs you want, look no further than this year’s US Open. A select few ball boys at this year’s tournament will wear Ralph Lauren Polo Tech shirts with biometric tracking capabilities.
The shirts won’t be worn by players but the sensors will connect to an iPhone or iPad over Bluetooth and relay information to it. The shirts have conductive threads throughout and require a small snap on module. The shirt should last 30hours and can be recharged by USB.
