MACHINA's Midi Controller Jacket v1.0

MACHINA, a group of independent developers and designers living in Mexico,  has created the Midi Controller Jacket ($285-$2600), an advanced functional yet fashionable wearble, that transmits music notes to a speaker based on the user’s movements and interactions with the jacket sensors.

This means beat makers with dancing skills, or dancers with a penchant for music making can create killer beats with the pop-and-lock of an arm. Potentiometers, four push buttons, a flex sensor, and a joy stick can be configured by the user through a mobile app.

Making music not really your gig? No worries, because their fully funded kickstarter video explains that MACHINA is also working on a HACKSTORE with open source code, where users can upload their own presets and programs to add more functionality to the jacket like mixing videos or interacting with a Kinect.

With a ton of other products under their belt, including thermochromic t-shirts (that remind us of this interesting Polar Ice Cap Shirt), MACHINA is definitely a group of wearables celebrities we’ll be looking out for.

Check out their demo video below for more information.

Introducing, Webelow Wear Green Wearables Lines

by on Oct.12, 2009, under Polar Ice Cap Shirt, Wearables, WW Products

Webelow Wear has been innovating in the wearable technology industry for the last two years with a long line of electroluminescent, thermochromic and screenprinted fashions that help users express themselves through unique clothing and exciting technology.

While wearable tech is an exciting industry, we cannot forget that we are amidst a crisis in our environment and we need to both be considerate of our energy consumption and focus our bright minds towards using our new forms of expression to educate others and provide solutions.  As people shaping the future we are responsible to, at the very least, consider the ways our technology will effect our world.

We’re no angels.  We all choose to make or not make lifestyle decisions that could make a difference one way or another.  We’re not environmental extremists or doomsday pessimists, we’re actually almost normal people, which makes us perfect vehicles to inspire change in others like us.

With that being said, we’re in R&D working on more sustainable wearable paths.  In the near future, we’ll be offering unique recycled fashions with wearable upgrades and solar designs that will help you get rid of the grid.

Our first Green Wearables offering will be a thermochromic ink series using a new eco-friendly ink and American Apparel Sustainable Edition organic shirts  to express some of the results of climate change.  The Green Wearables line’s only technology is the clever use of thermochromic ink.  We’ll explore polar ice cap melting, population redistribution, CO2 levels , rising global temperatures, and making a difference.

Check back frequently for more information, relevant climate change news and fascincating product offerings.
