Maybe its fashion-design fiction, or geek gone chic but whatever you call it fashion has gone totally hi-tech in various ways that let us know that the future is now. It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always seemed like the perfect pair, with the tech and fashion sets mixing like oil and water, but now math, science and technology are blending with fashion and design in seamless ways. Clothes are being asked to do way more than keep you warm or even make you look good, they are being asked to entertain you, find you friends and even handle you communications. Some our favorite tech-inspired fashions.

Spy Camera Shirt

Umbrella 2.0

All you James Bond wannabes, here is something that will help you in your covert spy missions. The Electronic Spy Camera Shirt hides the spy camera in plain sight and is hidden behind the artwork of a man holding a camera. Genius isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? The fully-functioning spy camera behind the soft cotton exterior is discreet and has a cable with a controller which can be hidden in your pocket. The Electronic Spy Camera Shirt holds over 150 color digital photos in 640 x 480 resolution and can be purchased from Think Geek for $39.99.

I found out my umbrella was an underachiever the day I saw the Pileus. Pileus is an umbrella connected to the Internet to make walking in rainy days fun. Pileus has a large screen on the top surface, a built-in camera, a motion sensor, GPS, and a digital compass. The current prototype has two main functions: photo-sharing through Flickr and 3D map navigation. A user can take photo with a camera on the umbrella, and pictures are uploaded to Flickr in two minutes with context tags via a wireless Internet connection. User can also enjoy themselves watching photo-streams downloaded from Flickr with a simple wrist snapping operation. Sadly, the umbrella is currently only a prototype but it kinda has that science fiction has come alive feel and how cool is that!

Bag TV Brings all new meaning to the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;wath my bag.â&#x20AC;? Bagtv is a totally new concept in bag design, combining bespoke luxury bags with high tech electronic equipment. The first in a range of new products, is a hand-bag, integrated with a high quality 7in TVscreen combining, DVD, and Mpeg player.

The system comes with full connectivity for use with computers or digital cameras through USB port and SD card slot. The bags come in seven different color combinations. The battery life for the TV will last you about 2.5 hours. The set with the TV will cost you ÂŁ295 or about $436.


The Emergency Bra Heartbeat Hoodie

Aqua Chameleon

Don’t you just hate it when you’re out and find don’t have a gas mask when you need it? Problem solved. A Chicago doctor Dr. Elena Bodnar, who won the Ig Nobel prize last year at Harvard University said her invention, an “Emergency Bra” that can be quickly converted into a pair of gas masks, is now available for purchase for $29.95 at ebbra.com. The Emergency Bra’s primary function is that of a conventional bra. In case of emergency, it can be quickly and easily converted into two face masks without removing any clothes. In case of emergency, where no specialized respiratory devices are available, it can decrease the inhalation of harmful airborne particles. Because the Emergency Bra masks can be securely fixed to the head, it frees a survivor’s hands to keep balance while running and removing objects on the way out of danger. In certain situations, by providing the wearer with a sense of security and protection, the Emergency Bra can reduce the chance of panic attack. Bodnar said she is currently working on a dress shirt for men that would convert into an emergency device. “You can never be too prepared,” she said.

Textile designer Yun Ding has created Aqua Chameleon a line of delicatelooking swimwear printed with smart pigments such as thermochromatic and photochromatic ink that change patterns based on certain conditions. The patterns gradually shift from a geometric print into a decorative pattern by reacting to temperature, sunlight, or water conditions. These “swim costumes” challenge our notion of how a garment should function aesthetically by adding dynamically changing patterns based on the changing environment around us and displaying it back for all to see.

Heartbeat Hoodie explores the idea of involuntarily documenting parts of life using a camera to take photographs at moments of interest or excitement. The camera, strategically placed above the eyes on the hoodie, takes photographs as the wearer’s heart rate increases. The camera is wired discreetly through the seeming of the garment to a basic stamp that communicates with a wireless heart rate monitor. The basic stamp uses an algorithm to analyze the heartbeat for increases that might signify a moment of excitement or interest as opposed to physical exercise. At the end of the day, you can reflect on moments that caused interest and excitement by viewing the photographs. Since the photographs are taken involuntarily, you may find new points of interest that you were not conscious of.


P Wearable Friend Finder

Wrist Power

New Media students at the University of Maine developed a Wearable Friend Finder that brings the match making, friend finding out of the internet and onto the streets. The students initially envisioned the Friend Finder as a dating service on campus, working from the premise that if a person were given more information about the personalities of the people they pass by, other then what they see, they would be more likely to break the ice and start a conversation. How does it work? Users enter their preferences and personality traits into a computer program and upload the information to a small, portable device. The user then plugs the device into a shirt or handbag wired with small LED lights incorporated into the design. When users with similar preferences come within 30 feet of each other,you both light up like laser tag, making it easier to spot a potential match in a crowd.

Dyson Energy Bracelet is a gadget that uses thermoelectric effects to harness energy and power your mobile phones for a few precious minutes more, when you desperately need it. Lemme explain a bit: The thermoelectric effect is the direct conversion of temperature differences to electric voltage and vice versa. Thanks to the Seebeck effect, the temperature difference between the surface which touch the skin and the other which is in the ambient air allows to produce electricity that is stocked in a battery. When the user needs to recharge a mobile device, he plugs it into the Dyson Energy through a micro-USB port and can have some additional minutes of use.

Social Networking Clothing?

Ping is a garment that connects to your Facebook account wirelessly and from anywhere. It allows you to stay connected to your friends and groups of friends simply by performing natural gestures that are built into the mechanics of the garments we wear. No phone, no laptop, no hardware. Simply go about your day, look good and stay connected. Lift up a hood, tie a bow, zip, button, and simply move, bend and swing to ping your friends naturally and automatically. Technology is integrated into the mechanics of the garment. For example, a sensor is integrated into the hood allowing the natural gesture of lifting the hood and putting it back down to communicate to Facebook. Lifting up the hood automatically sends a message and updates your status. Putting the hood down sends another message. A Facebook application allows you to customize your messages, assign them to groups of friends and even manage many different types of messages based on where you are, who youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pinging, or what your mood is. Get a ping back through more technology which is integrated into the shoulder of the garment that provides a subtle â&#x20AC;&#x153;tappingâ&#x20AC;? feeling. If your friends send you a comment or a message back, the garment will notify you by tapping you on the shoulder.

“I spent my holiday break chillaxing on a staycation while eating turducken sandwiches until my frenemy, called complaining about her boyfriend’s new bromance and about this total LBD wardrobe malfunction that exposed her bff’s tramp stamp at the holiday party she went to. I’m silently thinking she’s a total hater and wonder if I should defriend her but out loud I tell her to take a chill pill. Then to get over how much of a buzzkill the conversation had been I head out to the latest tweetup at the mall.” We’re certainly not suggesting you do, but if you answered something like this to your teacher’s “what did you do over the holiday break” essay question, at least he can now crack open the dictionary to find out what it means. Your spell checker is probably going crazy, but every single one of those words are now “real words” officially part of The New Oxford American Dictionary. Over 2,000 words and phrases were added to the dictionary, among them bromance, cheeseball, defriend, buzzkill, chillax, interweb and wardrobe malfunction (yes that is the sound of your English teacher having a heart attack). Additionally, the definitions of several old words – “friend,” “poke,” “meme,” “tweet”—have been updated to reflect the new ways in which those words can be used in the digital age. A senior assistant to the dictionary told Reuters that the additions are based on their popularity and quantity of use, which perhaps explains the additions of vuvuzela and staycation. Some lexicon fanatics think that many of the new words read more like a list of Twitter trending topics then a set of what should be considered “real words”

As wild or progressive, depending on how you look at it, the new words seem there were unfortunately (?), a number of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;non-wordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which failed to make it LQWRWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDO(QJOLVKOH[LFRQ²VXFKDV´&DQNOHVÂľ EOHQGRI´FDOIÂľDQG´DQNOHVÂľ WRLQGLFDWHDQXQXVXDOO\WKLFNDQNOH ´)XUJOLQJÂľ DFWRIIXPEOLQJLQ\RXUSRFNHW IRUNH\V ´:XUĂ&#x20AC;QJÂľ VXUĂ&#x20AC;QJWKHLQWHUQHWDWZRUN ´(DUZRUPÂľ DFDWFK\WXQH WKDW IUHTXHQWO\ JHWV VWXFN LQ \RXU KHDG  DQG ´1RQYHUVDWLRQÂľ D ZRUWKOHVV conversation) among millions of others. Apparently words added must be used in multiple independent places over a certain period of time to earn their spot, a rule put in place by the overseeing editors of the dictionary. The changes seem to be made to keep up with changing times and colloquialisms, but expect the debate to rage on as to whether we really need words like chillax and frenemy in our dictionary. The new words may never make it to the SATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or you next vocabulary exam but one thing is clear, the contemporary world of internet and mobile messages has changed the way language has been used. These two mediums have seen evolution of a whole new set of popular jargons and abbreviations, which are now slowly but surely being endorsed by WKHYHQHUDEOH2[IRUG'LFWLRQDU\DVLWFDOOVLWVHOI´7KHGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWLYHUHFRUGRIWKH (QJOLVKODQJXDJHÂľ
