From pedometers to connected ski goggles and watches, the rise of the wearables is upon us.

This year at CES, Polaroid announced their (Lady Gaga-inspired) GL20 Camera Glasses. Recently announced Eyez will embed a 720p HD video camera within a pair of eyeglasses designed to record live video data.

Belt buckles, scarves, jackets, shoes, watches, bags, umbrellas — all are becoming wearable electronics. For more fashion-related trends in wearable electronics, keep an eye on Diana EngLeah Buechley, and Syuzi Pakhchyan.
