22. These shawls are called Pi Sha in Chinese and are associated with Wudang Mountain martial arts.
23. In the left image the Pi Sha is the gauzy navy garment with the royal blue satin trim worn over cyan formal silks. We ordered several color combinations from China with the general idea that sensors and their wires could be hidden in the satin trim.
24. We wanted a smart garment that would be easy to put on and take off, would look attractive and Taoist, would not trap much heat, and could be used to embed multiple location (xyz) sensors.
25. We are not sure of the number or locations of the sensors, and it may be necessary to have sensors on the shoes, hands and head.
26. We plan to add a lower hem, add hems inside the cuffs, and lose the chest-level tie.  And shorten the pants.
