That's right. They made cloth that can listen. There goes the last shred of our privacy.

There are a number of investigations of other uses of active fibers. One subject is making a garment that monitors body functions like heart beat, respiration, and EKG. The military is one of the interested users, because battlefield survival depends upon quickly treating injuries. The garment would be connected to a computer, which would radio for help as soon as an injury is detected. They would also like to detect conditions like impending heat stroke, before it occurs. Obviously, the technology applies to heart patients and many other civilian uses. This stuff is fairly well along.

There is also research on including treatment in the garments, like tourniquets that could be activated remotely. (Think of the potential for software bugs. "I really don't like Microsoft products ... arrrgh.") Chemical warfare attire includes a pack that injects an antidote when you hit the pack hard. Injections of various types could be automated.

Another concept is the "millenium toilet," a DARPA concept. It automatically analyzes any urine presented to it to detect various health problems. This is not so far along. How about if when illegal drugs are detected, a high voltage ...

I don't see why cloth that can listen is a greater threat to privacy than an ordinary microphone. The cloth could listen to heatbeat and respiration, which would be useful.

Look at a human diagram. Bit of a distance between your socks and your mouth.

omg I hope my parents don't find out cause this is the kind of thing they'd use against me to keep me from having any privacy/freedom at all.
Without Royal there is a hole inside of me, I have no choice but to leave
