Anouk Wipprecht is designing cutting edge fashion using her technology background! via iq.intel.com

The experimental designer takes wearables into the future by fusing fashion with robotics and computer technologies, drawing inspiration from pioneering inventors while encouraging young girls to chase their curiosities through art and sciences.

Before taking an assignment at Microsoft… she worked as a “Designer in Residence” at Intel for nine months. Her job involved exploring innovative ways to use Intel Edison technology, designed for adding computer and communications capabilities to almost anything that can be connected to the Internet.

She calls the Spider Dress her most complicated human-system design so far because it required her to plumb the depths of her education and curiosities. Being curious is something she celebrates every day.

Adafruits’ very own Becky Stern interviewed Anouk at Maker Faire New York 2015! Find out more about Anouk wipprecht and her projects at the designers website! anoukwipprecht.nl

Check out the following video as well as Anouk’s vimeo profile to see some of the work that goes into creating such innovative fashion!



Adafruit 608-1

October 13th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.

Please promote and share #ALD15 with your friends and family so we can promote and share with all of the world wide web!
