Apple Goes Wearable

That Guy.

Yes, Apple has crossed over and is looking far into the future with new Senior Prototype Engineer, Richard DeVaul on the payroll. After an angry fist shaking session, we took a step back and examined the situation. While DeVaul has taken our dream path straight to Jobs (ha…a job with Jobs), us Mom-and-Pop wearable shops needn’t fear the Walmart-ing of our companies and brands. This, ladies and gentlemen, could mean an industry boom for wearables.

Wearables, like every other industry, has it’s layers. There are the couture designers trying to make you Gaga-ed out, the  Ipod wearable helping people-on-the-go move to a beat, the rave-scene wearable, the kitschy wearables products for all wearbles geeks,  the DIY wearable upgrade to entertain the wearbles tinkerers, the biometrics wearables used in military and medicine,  practical wearables for mass use and the home based wearables.  Apple’s position in the industry?  Considering the I-everything (Ipod, Iphone etc.) craze and DeVaul’s background, we’re in for a long ride of very cool, user friendly wearables.  But remember, this is one section of a growing industry!

Our advice: stay positive, stay informed, keep innovating because the industry was just put on the map in big way.

Dandelion Wearable Windmill – Mary Huang and Jennifer Kay

by on Mar.10, 2010, under Wearables

windmill wearables

A very Gaga design inspired by the theme of climate change, the “Dandelion” demonstrates the reality of human and wind powered designs.

Created by Mary Huang and Jennifer Kay, the Dandelion is a wearable accessory that creates energy from wind and human movement. We think it’s a conscious nod to alternate power sources and a fashion forward creation.

Lady Gaga’s Wearables

by on Mar.08, 2010, under Fashionable Wearables, Functional Wearables, Wearables

Well we knew it would only be a matter of time before Lady Gaga made her fashion transition to wearables.  This industry is made for artists like Gaga and Kayne who thrive on being the stand-out fashionista on stage.  We’re not sure who the magical designer was, but we’re betting on Hussein Chayalan.  The way the skirt creeps up the leg and the movement in the head piece screams Chayalan!  This makes us super happy on the inside.  Check out the video and let us know what you think!
