Yesterday, our 3-month challenge ended with an outstanding final. All twelve teams of finalists were on stage presenting their smart fashion projects in public. The jury was impressed with the progress achieved in the Fashion Fusion Lab, and full of praise for all the teams. Nevertheless, three winners had to be appointed that evening. Although the jury experts came from very different backgrounds, and despite the difficulty of comparing such varied concepts, their decision was unanimous.
Here they are, the winners of our Fashion Fusion Challenge 2016/17:
1st place: Trainwear
With their modular software system and specially developed sensors, Gernot Bahle, Bo Zhou and Lorenzo Fürg, in collaboration with the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, have created the requirements for a “virtual personal trainer” which monitors, accompanies and supports the individual wearer while training.
