'Could I see that in a size 40-gigabyte?'

Don't look now, but life is once again imitating art. Designers are turning out fashions with built-in cel phones and they're promising more technology-enhanced styles.

Remember Maxwell Smart and the shoe phone? Dick Tracy and the 2-way radio (later TV) wristwatch? James Bond and the pocket booby trap? They're already here, essentially. (Okay, maybe not the pocket trap.)

The possibilities seem limitless. How about video eyewear that provides instant replays? Belts that automatically expand? Or undershorts that warn of impending flatulence?
