Actually kids love those sports shoes that light up each step they take so there clearly isn't a fundamental resistance to active clothing. And that is a good example of energy harvesting. Perhaps all our clothes SHOULD become active to recover energy that can be re-used to power up all our gadgets (phones, smartphones, tablets). If the rules of the game you can only have and use gadgets that you can self-power or solar, wind power using your own clothes there would be another step up in power efficiency, which would be no bad thing.

Some interesting ideas for the urban market. For example, PUMA recently announced their Deadmau5 collection and some of these pieces could fit there.

I don't think the sole motivation of the artist was to make a sale, but rather to inspire - inspire others to "follow the trend" and to take action, as well as an intention of creating something that stands out for publicity. Every idea was a unique concept in its own right meant to trigger its own individual interpretation and challenge conventional thinking.

Hmmm. Maybe it's just me, but... A tidier than most high-viz jacket, Tacky applique lungs on a polo shirt, 70's or 80s PCB scrap 'jewelry' (yawn), A rather less than refined necklace, and a bizarre acrylic creation suitably only for the catwalk. To whom are they selling the concepts?

The move towards electronic textiles and fashion gets a burst of hype every few years, bur rarely seems to take off. Looks like the students are discovering the possibilities again. Is the reason it hasn't reached the mainstream down to execution or some fundamental resistance to "active" clothing and jewelry? Which of these pieces would you wear?
