FashionTech.

THE FUTURE IS ALLOWING THE BODY TO BECOME A HUMAN CANVAS. SMART FASHION AND FASHION TECH IS ABOUT SENDING A MESSAGE AND EXPRESSING WHO YOU ARE. THIS IS A FIRST PRINCIPLE. WE NEED FASHION BUILT FOR OUR DIGITAL FUTURE.

Open source fashion; 3D printable designs, patterns, materials, electronics will generate a new wave of innovation. This combined with a growing distributed Machine-2-Machine technology will allow for a sustainable on demand fashion future. 

The fashion industry is ready for big disruption, but we still have a long way to go before smart clothing and fashion tech truly becomes part of the industry that we know.

SHAPE SHIFTING.  

My ultimate fashion future vision is to create programmable garments that enable superpowers. A second skin.

Self-assembling nanotechnology through nanobots allows for thousands of small individual fibres to start forming and materialising around the person's body. A basic structure is formed where more advanced and customised features can be added on. This only takes seconds.

 

Fashion is now functional. The original fibres can be interlaced with photovoltaics, piezoelectric nanowire, carbon nanotubes, metamaterials, claytronics or any number of other useful materials.

This overlay skin can be adapted to any environment, style and function merging. Space suits, underwater breathing, flying... literally anything. 

 

I am currently pioneering digital fashion as the founder of DIGITALAX— the first digital fashion NFT protocol and marketplace for gaming and esports.
