Practically the only time I am aware of my breathe is during my yoga practice—even then if it wasn’t for the cautious reminder by my instructor I would simply forget, for minutes at a time, to breathe. Designer Synne Geirsdatter Frydenberg wants to use fashion to draw attention to one’s breathe. Pneuma is a white, embroidered dress speckled with LEDs that monitors the breathing movement of the wearer around the waist (not chest) via a sensor. The result is a patterned visualization of the wearer’s breathing cycle with superficial breathing resulting in dim LED lights and deep breathing in brighter, more luminescent light patterns. I’m also loving the flexible circuit via Frauenhofer IZM. Eric from Talk2MyShirt has a wonderful overview of the the TexLab that is conducting some fascinating R&D in flexible electronic circuit substrates.
