AwareFashion visualizes invisible wireless networks

Richard Etter, Diana Grathwohl and Sigmund Homolya have teamed up to develop what they call AwareFashion, which is basically clothing that senses and visualizes invisible, digital layer of wireless networks surrounding us these days. This concept will take advantage of all radio waves, GSM for cellphones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS or other wireless systems by alerting you to their presence so that you are more aware of your surrounding digital environment. No real practical use in it just yet, but who knows – it could pave the way to something much more interesting where tech-fashion is concerned many years down the road.
