Some of their work comprises inventive battery systems to the latest in light technology, digital knitting and weaving and traditional hand processes to achieve radical shapes to 3D printing.

They also include sound reactive LEDs, motion and light sensors, mood technology, futuristic fabrics made from sustainable materials embedded with sensitive technologies.

They have also developed new materials and clothes that respond to the body itself, creating innovative, ready-to-wear fashion technology experiences.

“Wearable and washable, these gadget-garments are comfortable and stylish at the same time,” the press release said.
