At the beginning of the tech burst, consumers had to be content with the rectangular shaped boom box. That was in the seventies. All the way to the eighties people still had no additional features asides being able to listen to FM, AM, tape cassettes and recording features. The nineties were the golden years. The size started coming down. The prices soon followed.
The Self-Painting Dress For Sale
The quintessential artist, Anouk Wipprecht, has always been a huge fan of merging technology into everyday fashion apparels. Anouk recently created the ‘self-painting’ dress which is said to be worth a lot of money. The trend has already caught momentum and innovators are releasing exciting products. Here are a few succinct examples;
- Two researchers, Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt release a working prototype of the Airbag for Cyclists System. The unique one of a kind trademark contraption prevents your head from direct impact hence saving your life.
- Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan developed the world’s first ever smart gloves. These were ideally designed to be used by firefighters. With the gloves, the firefighters would be able to keep in touch by casual motions on the sensors on their gloves.
- The recycling firm, SegraSegra submitted an entry of T-shirts and jackets made out of bicycle tubes.
- Fashion designer, Soledad Martin has taken an entirely new angle, however. He’s manufacturing shoes which will collect the energy and use it to charge phones and laptops.
Some time back, some models put on Google Glass on the runway in Milan or Paris and all over sudden everyone knew that the glasses were indeed cool. Fashion designers get paid for coming up with ideas on how to incorporate the tech into fashion.
