Now Geeks Can Go Weeks in the Same Pants

One up-and-coming trend investors should be aware of is that of wearable technology. It's best-known these days in the form of activity-monitoring wristbands from Nike and Fitbit, Google Glass, and of course Apple's long-rumored iWatch.

At the recent CE Week in New York City, however, Motley Fool analyst Rex Moore found evidence that serious fashion designers are joining the trend and are already putting out some interesting merchandise -- from temperature-regulating jackets to shoes made from a 3-D printer. Apple- and Android-device users can also celebrate the wide variety of fashion products for their toys, including an ingenious wearable iPad case.

The highlight of the week was the Fashion Ware runway show, produced by Living in Digital Times. Rex spoke with founder Robin Raskin about some of the interesting items featured in the show -- including pants enhanced by nanotechnology that won't need changing for weeks.
