We are used to reading and sending tweets and status updates on smartphones and tablets - but will we soon be doing this on people's clothes?

This is the future trend that fashion house CuteCircuit are banking on. The business, set up by Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz in 2004, specialises in wearable technology.

It currently makes electronic clothes for the catwalk, and is now adapting its technology in an attempt to take on the high street.

The BBC's Jane Wakefield caught up with Francesca Rosella at CuteCircuit's headquarters in east London, to see how dresses and t-shirts can go online.
