Tag: interactive wearable designs
There are quite a few interactive wearable designs out there that are “neat” and “cool”. There aren’t many that are necessary and beneficial. Reading about the latest interactive designs by Lina Saleem and Fraunhofer IZM, I was struck with how the Hap Tickle Greeting Dress could actually be used for good. While an interactive wearable design does not replace the real touch of humans, it does act as temporary substitute. Just as you can send a love one a reminder that you are thinking about them, you can calm a lost child by “stroking” their neck or calm a patient about to go into surgery with hopeful “strokes” on their wrist. The dress is an awesome and creative idea, but it can be used to spark some innovation in industries where human touch is comforting but not always available.
