Alive Animal Hi-Tech T-Shirts Turn You into a Zodiac Creature

Alive Animals are hi-tech t-shirts that were developed as part of a collaboration between Imascono AR Clothing and EnClaveChina. The partnership was inspired by it being the Year of the Horse, which is said to be a good time for teamwork.

The Chinese zodiac inspiration is also carried through in the very fabric of the garments, which are printed with animals from the calendar. Once you've put on one of the shirts and have downloaded the Imascono app, a friend will be able to look at you through a smartphone screen and see that your head has been replaced by an animation of that animal's head.

Alive Animals is hoping to raise $4,000 on Kickstarter over the next 20 days, which will help launch the production of these fun, living tees. Stats for Augmented Reality Zodiac Tees Trending: Older & Average
