Woven, a graduation project by Dutch designers Christiaan Ribbens and Patrick Kersten, is a wearable gaming platform that turns you into a controller. The prototype sweatshirt features integrated technology like Bluetooth, active speakers, shaker motors, a RGB LED screen, heart rate sensor, and more.

Woven is the first complete e-wearable pervasive game platform prototype. Playing a game has become magical. But during the build we discovered that Woven is much more than a game platform. It is a true platform possible to use during daily activities and make them much more fun.

CNET notes that the platform could also be used to monitor your physical activity, provide social network updates, and function as a TV remote. You can see the possibilities of the prototype demonstrated in the video below:
