How Wearable Tech Can Be Used for Social Good
Designs from The New School are helping us disconnect and aiding people with visual impairment
The functionality of clothing continues to expand thanks to the concept of wearable technology. Not limited to one use or design, this realm continues to expand as more and more creatives explore what it means to create a connected garment. Many of these might even seem like average articles of clothing from the outside. The New School’s Parsons School of Design recently presented work at SXSW that focused specifically on wearable tech created for social good.
Kendall Warson, for example, created ‘Sensory’ to help people with visual impairments.
