Leslie Birch’s FLORAbrella project is featured on Cosmo today, nice!
Runway fashion has plenty of weird moments (see basically everything here), but crossed with technology, it can get downright insane. From mood-sensing collars to clothes-matching LED umbrellas, these five products, shown at Tech In Motion’s Wearable Tech Fashion Show, may seem more Jetsons than Target today, but get ready. They’ll be your wardrobe staples in no time.
1. The Color-Sensing Light-Up Umbrella Struck by a surprise shower during your commute? In the future, you’ll always match. FLORAbrella, a LED-stripe umbrella, has a color sensor that can match its light to what you’re wearing — or display rainbow or raindrop patterns for days you’d like to mix it up. It’s a small consolation for getting soaked.
