Thanks to Intel’s persistent vision of partnering engineers with fashion designers, we are seeing an emergence of ideas that weave technology into garments primarily as vehicles for self-expression.
The latest is the etherial butterfly dress from Turkish couture designers Ezra and Tuba Çetin. Using the Intel Edison coupled with a proximity sensor, approximately 40 butterflies flap and then dramatically take flight as an individual approaches the wearer.
This type of kinetic fashion is reminiscent of the groundbreaking work of Hussein Chalayan and is quickly become a trend as more and more fashion designers begin to experiment with the expressive potential of technology.
