GLOW

A sound interactive capsule collection that responds and illuminates when it senses sound around you.

 

OVERVIEW

 
  • This capsule collection is exploring ways in how we can playfully visualize sound on a fashion tech garment that is both stylish and easy to wear. We developed a modular wearable technology that is easy to detach from the garment, and includes a microcontroller, mic sensor, and bluetooth connectivity. Launching soon is a mobile app which can customize the color and animation of the LEDs.

    The collection is now available to rent or purchase at Wearable Media. Garments lovingly produced in NYC by OneTo13 Studio.
