Forget smartwatches – in just five years, the next generation of British teenagers could be on top of AI-powered wearable technology, according to a new report.

Scientist and leading futurist Andrew Grill says connected clothing will mean sneakers will have the ability to “talk” to each other and match the style of other feet on the street.

He believes the trainers could have a 5G-enabled chip built in, which will communicate with other people passing by.

They will keep data on your individual style, preferences, budget and lifestyle, and gather information on what new ‘looks’ similar shoppers are trying out.

Grill told MailOnline: “Because standalone 5G can connect more devices, it means not only will it connect more people with phones, it will also be able to connect more things.”

‘So if you use your Oyster card or your ID card to get into the office, you’re probably using a little chip that’s inside the plastic called RFID, which is a radio frequency identification chip.

“So imagine if you combine that with a 5G connection, it means you can now enable multiple things that are on the move.”

A new report has revealed that in just five years, the next generation of UK teenagers could be up to speed on AI-powered wearable technology, including sneakers that “talk to each other”.

Scientist and leading futurist Andrew Grill has collaborated with Vodafone to share his top five predictions for how 5G technologies will transform the UK, if 5G Standalone (5G SA) is rolled out across the country.

Grill added: “So that could affect not just sneakers, but pretty much anything that can have a small device the size of a 1p coin.”

In addition to improved speeds, longer battery life and more places to connect, it also has the potential to change other aspects of our lives, including retail, entertainment and sports, Grill says.

These insights will drive an AI personal style guide using the predictive power of platforms like ChatGPT, suggesting new styles, brands or designers to experiment with, and products to try.

Grill compared the potential new phenomenon to the concept of airtag, explaining: “At the moment, Airtag relies on Bluetooth, so you have to be connected to a phone.

“Imagine Airtag being completely self-contained and scaled down so you can tag things and then use it to inform your style choices.”

This means that if you see an item of clothing you like on a stranger on the street, you won’t need to approach and ask, your device will discover it for you.

There is a possibility that a large number of different applications will be available using this technology in the future.

The scientist explained: ‘These innovations are happening now. “I think there’s a real desire for people to have more informed choices in fashion and there’s a whole sustainability angle there.”

And it’s not just about clothing: standalone 5G has the potential to transform other sectors of our lives, such as entertainment and sports.

Ultra-personalized, made-on-demand cosmetics could become commonplace in the next ten years.

Using apps on your smartphone, you will be able to scan your own skin or the color you want to match on the fly and then create a personalized beauty product, such as lipstick, using a combination of 5G, 3D printing and AI technologies.

This will lead to less waste as people only produce the shade and quantity they need by submitting a digital request to a pop-up 3D printing concession at a department store, which can then print the product in as little as three minutes.

Grill said these technologies will be more sustainable, as brands and consumers only order and make exactly what they need, in custom-made sizes and in recyclable packaging.

He explained, “I think if you really allow the end user to have some control over these things, brands won’t waste printing and making products that no one wants.”

“They’re actually going to love this, because then they’re going to hear, oh, okay, actually this tone that we didn’t even think about is very popular because people can choose it for themselves.”

Scientists also claim that the 5G SA network could have the potential to change the way you watch your favorite TV shows.

The report explains that this could happen with shows like ITV’s Love Island, for example, which attracts millions of British viewers each year.

In the future, during the show, viewers will be able to select, on their smartphone or on television, which pair of contestants they want to “match.”

Then, thanks to a 5G SA network, producers will be able to use real-life images of contestants along with AI-generated content to generate endless different, personalized results based on the viewer’s choices, combining the elements of the real life of the program with realistic scenarios generated by AI.

Grill said: “Using AI, you may be able to create your own virtual docking because the video and voice cloning will be very good.”

‘It sounds crazy and my job as a futurist is to observe things that are not too crazy. But right now I’ve cloned my own voice and I’m starting to play with cloning videos.

He admitted: “It looks very close to the real thing, so we’re not too far away from on-demand streaming quality.”

Plus, on-the-go entertainment could be more accessible than ever, with palm-sized devices that project images and videos onto any available surface.

With sport, to…
