This Crazy Fashion Will Make You Hands Free #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #art #fashion

Aubrey Wang Fashion Feeding Machine

Are we too busy with our constant multitasking? This fashion that I found on HuffPost UK delves into speculative fiction with a playful answer. Designer Aubrey Wang, a MA student of Royal College, London, combines her love of fashion, science and electronics with designs that bring attention to plights like tech addiction. How do you help people with curved spines from hunching over their phones? The designer’s response is a helmet for automated feeding and clothing that is cut to straighten the back. The helmet makes use of some LEDs along with a conveyor belt. Aubrey is a big Arduino fan, and even refers to herself as “Aubruino” in her portfolio.

Along with the tech, she also engages media in a clever way to provide story for her work. Her videos capture everyday uses for her fashion using absurdism. I encourage you to check out the interview with the designer on HuffPost, as writer Brooke Roberts-Islam has dug in deep to find Aubrey’s motivations and has collected some great pics of her sketchbooks. Some of the images are based on medical devices, adding fact to fiction. Do you have ideas for fashion that challenge the world? Check out our FLORA microcontroller that can allow you to create an outfit that senses and moves. A little bit of Arduino can add that mysterious touch of tech.
