Starting a conversation with a stranger is not easy for everyone. Find a common topic, something interesting to talk about with someone else to break the ice… there are people who have difficulties and if this is our case, them it A subtle but very useful t-shirt.
social wear There is a project to make shirts that show words across the chest based on the other person’s interests in real time. What is interesting is not so much the social interaction, but the technology behind this garment capable of knowing who is in front of us and the curious system with which the messages are displayed.
communication is the social fabric
In the chest we found thermochromic ink at 29 °C. Ink, a combination of liquid crystal and dye capable of changing color according to temperature. Its operation is similar to one of those humor rings that show different colors depending on the temperature of our body.
Next to this, we have a soft circuit that combines conductive threads of gold and a compound called other Medtex130 Which also has conductive properties. Pairing them with the RFDuino lets us know who we face by wearing our shirts, and showing what we have in common.
At the moment it is a prototype and it is not seen in any clothing store, but the technology of displaying messages in real time without using large panels is very interesting. Maybe don’t bring it up on a first date but curious as a concept.
