From the Apple Watch to the Fitbit, wearable technologies are a part of our daily lives. But what’s next?

A group of 24 Australian artists and designers from the University of NSW have visited China to explore the wearable technologies of tomorrow.

A scarf which protects its wearer from smog and a meditation pod are among the prototypes designed by the group, who are participating in a program called ‘Haptic Interface’.

Program facilitator, and an artist and designer, Tricia Flanagan told SBS News: “China is a hothouse for this wearable technology space. They get exposed to something at a kind of scale that perhaps they haven’t seen before.”

The group collaborated with Chinese students, manufacturers and organisations in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. They hope Asia’s technological expertise will help them create products to benefit communities back home.
