TECH

Wearables are the intersection of fashion and technology. These two worlds, once seen as disconnected, are now fusing into a genre that is most unique to the 21st century. The rise of tech in fashion first came to the scene in the primitive form of red blinking sneaker soles, popularly worn in the 1990s by toddlers and adults alike. 

Since then, innovation has overtaken the industry into a steep uphill climb. Fashion designers and Arduino pioneers have dedicated their hobbies and educational practices in exploring what wearable technology means, pushing the boundaries and releasing works of art surpassing what people thought was possible extending beyond the commonplace trend of smart watches and fitness monitors!

Jellyfish Skirt
Jellyfish are boneless animals that float freely through the world’s oceans. There are thousands of different species which come in various colors, shapes and sizes. The Jellyfish Skirt was designed in order to visualize how electrical signals could be used to imitate these beautiful sea creatures who are often able to display an incredible show of lights. The structure of the skirt makes the fiber optics move like jellyfish floating in the ocean.
