Shape-shifting clothing may become a reality - in the Highlands!

I think quite a long number of years ago I read in some Sci-Fi novel a storyline which involved shape-shifting clothes (can't remember who the author might have been), but now I read that such 'technical' clothing may become a reality. According to the linked report, the clothing 'could carry sensors to monitor the wearer's health' and contain 'mechanisms programmed to change shape when warmed, or in response to an electric current'. Other storage features can be incorporated, such as MP3 players.

Distance Lab of Forres, Moray, is to hold an open day on 29th May when Di Mainstone, the designer, will discuss her Haute Tech creations. The technology was developed 'along with Joanne Berzowska, founder and research director of XS Labs in Montreal'.
