Responsive Fashion

Hi-tech apparel that promotes interactivity with the wearer

Implications - Wearable technology has been a direction in fashion for the last couple of years, but it has mainly focused on accessories, like watches and bracelets, that allow wearers to connect to the Internet and their social networks. Now there is a new breed of fashion technology that promotes interactivity and responds to user actions. These pieces, which range from clothing that simulates the feeling of being hugged to apparel that can change from opaque to transparent, indicate the next level of interactive, hi-tech apparel that encourages consumer engagement.
