WW is very excited about the concept of using SMAs (Shape Memory Alloys) to create self-adjusting clothing. We have already seen the Hussein Chalayan make strides in this area with his lines of shape-shifting high fashions. Thanks to our friends at Fashioning Technology, we recently ran across some exciting new work by Lynda Fletcher, a student at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design.
Similar to some ideas we’re exploring, these clothes react to temperature and expose layers of fabric in response to heat in the environment. The movable layering allows the clothing to breathe when necessary.
We look forward to seeing more designs in this area. Who’s working on my Mcfly Jacket?
We are proud to annouce that our latest Polar Ice Cap design will be featured at Capitol Hemp. This DC landmark is dedicated to offering the highest quality products made from Industrial Hemp. Using Satori Hemp, the shirts are lightweight, comfortable and eco-friendly. Capitol Hemp is located underground at 1802 Adams Mill Road, NW Washington, DC 20009 in the heart of the Adams Morgan neighborhood.
Many thanks to Capitol Hemp!!
Sparkfun is crazy! We love the store and buy most of our prototyping stuff from them. We’re going to be able to build a Sparkfun cabin with all of the red boxes by the time we’re done with our various R&D projects.
They’re having a free day next month. Free day!
To us, this is equivalent to one of those Nickelodeon Toys-R-Us shopping sprees where you pile crap into a shopping cart for 60 seconds. I would be at home cursing my luck and cursing at the kid on the screen.
“Get the bluesmirf! You just passed the bluesmirf, damnit!”
Now we’re the ones behind the cart. Thank you, Sparkfun.
