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.
