Digital Button Lets You Wear Images and Animated GIFs
Oldschool pins get a user-driven update
For a long time now, buttons and pins have been used to display both support for a cause or defiance against a system. Now, these familiar little badges are getting an update. With Pins Collective, you can create, share and wear animated GIFs, or any image you choose, on your shirt.
The badge functions as a fashionable accessory that spotlights the user’s identity, defines their personality and allows them to change the design on display in a quick moment.
There are many uses for a mutable pin like this: pinning it to bags, wearing as a necklace desktop reminder, as a ‘baby on board’ notice on transport. The round 3.4 inch screen is semi-reflective and semi backlit. This makes the screen very versatile as the image gets sharper when sunlight hits it. As the little device is backlit it also is said to work well indoors.
