Lori Wahl's insight:
This is a great start to integrating a power source into clothing. I am interested in integrating solar cells into clothing in a way that does not look obvious... where the cells appear to be an embellishment rather than "I am wearing a set of solar cells". Some type of "on- board" power source would be greatly beneficial for e-textiles in order to remove the reliance on batteries.
For example, “Run” invites participants to create a geographically dispersed race via a networked shoe interface, while “Mix” is a wearable device created to encourage overweight children to move via a gesture-based system to share music.
This is a great interview with Jennifer from Electric Foxy that showcases her design philosophy with wearable technology. I was the apparel designer that collaborated with her on the Zip Jacket. It was a very fun and challenging project.
