Clothes that Talk

BYOB is a computationally enhanced modular textile system that makes available a new material to make “smart” fabric objects. The small modular elements are flexible, networked, input/output capable, and interlock with other modules in a reconfigurable way. The object built out of the elements is capable of communicating with people and other objects, and of responding to its environment. It allows the pocket to communicate with the scarf to match the design or it might warn the user of her forgotten cellphone.
