Utsavi Jha

A defining trend last year, and a reigning one this year- it would be safe to say that Smartwatches have become a household phenomenon that everyone wants a piece of in their lives. Realizing the massive scope that the advent of Smartwatches has created, a whole range of Smart wearables is opening up and if you thought that smartwatches are cool, you can trust me when I say you’d be blown away with what innovation, Technology and Fashion can do to our lives through the many smart wearable concepts. Curating the ‘here to stay’ Smart Wearables across various avenues that move beyond the prototype smartwatch, here’s where you can look at what the future of technology and fashion holds for us. And, with us being major suckers for the Fashion and Tech blend, we are all eyes to witness the rise of the Fashion and Tech melange.

SMART CLOTHING

Although these might not be a rage as of today, we can definitely be assured that smart clothing is going to be the next big trend because we would never cease to wear clothes, would we? With smart elements being incorporated into outfits by various brands and companies, alike, smart wearables vouch to make technology more hands on and of course, help us flaunt our techy side in a more fashion savvy manner.

1.YIN GAO’S DRESS TO NOTIFY YOU’RE BEING WATCHED

How happy would you be if I told you about a dress that notified you when you were being watched? Dresses by Canadian designer Yin Gao, that have eye-tracking technology embedded into them, light up on sensing someone’s gaze and make the dress move in enthralling patterns thanks to the tiny motors embedded into them. All in all, these dresses are good news for you, but not too good for your admirers, I can tell!

2.POLLUTION MONITORING FASHION

Using technology in a truly innovative fashion are NYU students Nien Lam and Sue Ngo, who came up with a unique mechanism to help us deal with our pollution heavy lifestyles. Their innovative Sweatshirts change colour from a bright pink to a dull grey when exposed to excessive amounts of carbon monoxide, thus helping us be aware about the amount of pollution we surround ourselves with and helping us keep our pollution levels in check.

3.DRESSES WITH KINETIC ENERGY AND FASHION

 Gadgets utilizing Kinetic energy to provide output have been around for quite some time now. However, Rafael Rozenkranz’s innovation, the jogging suit, is a fresh perspective of an intriguing blend between Fashion and Technology. The suit that is embedded with an mp3 player operates solely by the kinetic energy created while jogging. Now this is innovation!

4.COLOR-SHIFTING CLOTHES BY ALEXANDER WANG

 A dress that gives you your own unique colour and personality is none other than the color-shifting collection by Alexander Wang that is activated by varying levels of heat. Through his heat sensing dresses, Alexander Wang developed thermo reactive jackets, suits and heat-sensitive skirts that monitor your levels of heat and accordingly change colours. Certainly priced towards the higher end, the dress guarantees exclusivity like never before!

That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
