The BB.Suit is a 3D knitted onesie that doubles as a Wi-Fi hotspot and music library #WearableWednesday

WANT has posted about this cool project that was shown at SXSW this year. Would you wear the BB.Suit?

Welcome to the BB.Suit at SXSW 2014. This suit is to show that wearable technology will be the future. A future where people wearing hi-tech clothes is the most natural thing in the world. The concept is the result of a great collaboration between ByBorre (a fabric innovation brand), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), 22Tracks (a music platform), CRISP, Daan Spangenberg Graphics and Want.nl (a Dutch online magazine about Technology and Gadgets). Together, we want to show the ideas and concepts we have about wearable technology. We think garments are one of the exciting futures for interface design, connecting the wearer to people and places, becoming the ideal interface for many new user experiences.

It started with the health industry. We were making pillows for people with dementia to make conversation with them through vibration. This is because there other senses are not reacting very well anymore. From there we moved on. Byborre developed a new way of 3d knitting with imbedding the technology inside. The BB.Suit contains full Wifi, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC. The idea with this beautiful piece of wearable technology is that people can find the BB.Suit through GPS, so you can follow his way at SXSW. Stay up-to-date of all the great things at SXSW.
