Wearable Tech

1. Hug Shirt
“The Hug Shirt is a shirt that makes people send hugs over distance! Embedded in the shirt there are sensors that feel the strength of the touch, the skin warmth and the heartbeat rate of the sender and actuators that recreate the sensation of touch, warmth and emotion of the hug to the shirt of the distant loved one.”

2. Kinetic Dress
“KineticDress is a Victorian inspired evening gown reactive to the wearer’s activities and mood. The KineticDress is sewn of an elastic textile embedded with sensors that follows closely the body of the wearer. The sensors are able to capture the wearer’s movements and interaction with others and display this data through the electroluminescent embroidery that covers the external skirt section of the dress.”

3. Quora Smart Glove for Stroke Survivors
“The wearable system consists of an interactive glove embedded with an RFID reader, a wireless headset and RFID tags that can be attached to objects. In conjunction with a headset, the gloves are used by a caregiver to record audio narratives and tag objects with stories. The same gloves are used by the stroke survivor to sense the tags and playback recorded stories.”
