Here's a shirt that records ECG data and transmits it to a bluetooth device (the article says to a cell phone, hopefully it can transmit to PDAs as well).
This is part of the first wave of ubiquitous, self-monitoring clothing. Unlike jackets with built-in MP3 players, clothes that have specialized monitoring capabilities, like temperature, heart rate, and perspiration levels (to name but a few) will actually be useful devices in the future. Like regular clothes, however, they will need to find a way to survive laundry day.
