MATERIALS WITH MOOD
What will happen if your dress or your accessories can show how you feel? This is the exact thing that the fashion prototypes, creatures of „Probe”, make in the minute, when you dress them. The project „Skin Probe” of „Philips” studies the change from „intelligent” to „sensitive” products and technologies. A part of it is the duplex Bubble Dress that perfectly fits at every body and mood. On it there are biometric sensors, situated in the interior layer of the toilet. Depending on the temperature of the body, as on the senses of fear, anger, love and happiness, the sensors change the colors and the reflection of the toilet. After this are generated and projected on the second layer of the dress to express the emotional condition of the man that had worn it.
Ingrid Ball from „Philips Design” shares for „Daily mail” that the dress can be programmed in this way that it can become red, when man is angry or green – when he is calm. This type technology is created to push toward discussions the wearing of clothes from „sensitive” materials.
Another project that is strongly bound with the thermal temperature and with the emotional condition is the wireless attached to the body jewels. They are product of the teamwork between „Probe” and the European project „Stella”. These accessories have sensors, stimulator, display and electronic base that gather the energy of the body and change the color of the jewel depending on the mood of the man. They define in a new way the traditional ornaments for body.
Specialists think that the articles that show the emotions of the man, will facilitate in a large degree the communication between the people. People prognosticate that when these products will penetrate on a mass scale in the market (around 2020), they will become a rave very quickly.
