High Tech Fashion from CES #WearableWednesday

Blue3DShoes

I’ve been hearing some exciting things about tech fashion at the Consumer Electronics Show and I finally found some great coverage of the fashion show at BBC News. Check out these chunky blue 3D printed shoes by Ultimaker. I love the way they reflect light with their mathematical prisms. Apparently Ultimaker had their intricate lace-like InBloom dress there as well. In this picture it appears to be missing its long matching ivory train, but nonetheless, its configured with 191 panels of printed material. BTW, fashionistas, Ultimaker offers this and other patterns from XYZ Workshop for free.

Next up is a fun Epaper display ring modeled by its designer, Judy Tomlinson. The ring is called Zazzi and offers discreet notifications, as well as photos from a smartphone. I actually like the geometric image featured, as it encourages the artistic side of tech. Zazzi can be worn as a ring, bracelet or pendant.

Finally, the most colorful of the bunch by designer, Rainbow Winter. These two dresses respond to environment. The first uses photochromic ink which blooms in vivid colors when in contact with UV light (notice the white strips). The other puffs outward in reaction to sound, looking like a magical sparkly lantern. Rainbow’s work is really unique as she experiments with high tech fabrics and sensors. It’s a great combination that I certainly want to explore.

If you want to experiment with some high tech fabric. Check out our Knit Jersey Conductive Fabric. The combination of stretch and electricity can enable you to make a switch or touch sensor. Have fun making something undercover in your wearable that creates light, sound or movement.
