I am incredibly interested in building interactive clothing. I have seen a few companies or artists make clothing that “responds” and lights up to questions that are answered through an iPad. There is a direct connection between the iPad app and the color change in the clothing, however I am more interested in interactive clothing that can light up, make a sound, or even vibrate back with touch. I think it would be very cool to be able to touch certain parts on a shirt, for example: the back, shoulder, pocket etc., that would be able to ‘”respond” to a person’s touch. The clothing can also be force/pressure sensitive, and can respond with different colors depending on how hard or soft someone’s touch on the clothing is.
This blogpost contains a list of some futuristic and interactive fashion and clothing designs that I have found insightful and inspiring!
