Interactive fashion designers
CuteCircuit, London, United Kingdom
CuteCircuit's garments and accessories merge the fields of wearable computing and telecommunication technology, creating an exciting new interface for personal telecommunication. Their Hug Shirt allows a mobile phone to deliver "hug data" to a friend's phone that it is then seamlessly transmitted via Bluetooth to his or her shirt, resulting in the wearer getting an actual squeeze. The Fast Forward gallery featured their "Galaxy Dress," the world's largest, wearable LED display.
