Body Technology Interfaces

Craft & Design

I’ve been working on a project where I knit sweaters to go from gadgets to your body. They’re supposed to be a fun commentary on how attached and concentrated on technology we are, and to highlight the lack of movement that happens when we’re engrossed in our laptops, keyboards, PDAs, etc. I plan on making many more, and would be curious what ideas fellow technologists might have for different iterations. the one pictured above is for privacy, warmth, and concentration in public spaces while using a laptop.

    That’s brilliant. Fantastic social commentary. I’d love to see photos of whole groups wearing these, lined up in the chairs at airports or on buses, completely isolated from each other.

    Sad as it is, I’ll admit that I’ve used a coat draped over my head for privacy and concentration on my laptop.
