networked garments

/1 ‘BB suit’ by ByBorre. Onesie outfitted with a WiFi hotspot, GPS tracking and a music library, which makes the suit an internet-connected, walking music library

/2 ‘Ping’ by Jennifer Darmour. Social networking garment that connects to your Facebook account wirelessly and from anywhere by performing natural gestures. No phone, no laptop, no hardware.

/3 ‘CHBL Jammer’ coat by Coop Himmelblau. Signal-jamming coat that let its users disappear. Google can not find you anymore, you are no longer reach¬able on your mobile phone and no information from your credit card can be captured. The design also hides and frees the individual physicality.
