Whoa. Wait a minute. Wearable technology? Yes, clearly big goals are being kicked in Australia. Meet the ‘Alert Shirt’: a jersey that allows fans to experience what AFL football players are feeling live during televised games – from the couch.
The almost unbelievable blend of wearable merchandise and technology captures and broadcasts information at key moments during a match, enabling a continuous flow of communication.
