CTIA runway show highlights wireless fashion & devices

Mar '07
CTIA WIRELESS 2007, the world's largest event for the wireless industry,awarded Ozan Cakmakci of the University of Central Florida the second annual Fashion In Motion scholarship for his Eyeglass-based display design.

Honored for his innovative entry and showcased in the finale runway show, Ozan Cakmakci is the recipient of the $10,000 Scholarship awarded by CTIA WIRELESS to the most outstanding wireless entry.

Numerous submissions were received and featured in the Fashion In Motion scholarship competition, which takes place this week during CTIA WIRELESS.

The Eyeglass-based display is a revolutionary new user interface that enables consumers to watch multimedia content or view emails and documents, just as one would do on a portable computer or cell phone.

The wearable device allows for hands-free operation and makes viewing information possible, anytime, anywhere.“Students were asked to combine wireless technology and fashion to produce products with a vision of the future in wearable wireless communication technology,” said Robert Mesirow, show director and vice president of CTIA WIRELESS.

“The designs were outstanding and our judges were impressed with the level and sophistication of the designs. We extend our congratulations to Ozan for his innovative design.”

Participants submitted their designs of either existing or prototype products, and were judged by leaders from the technology and fashion industries. Entries were judged on innovation and creativity; viability; applicability to culture and lifestyle; and fashion and style.
