Clothes That Respond To Light Showcase The Softer Side Of Wearable Tech

None of it is particularly wearable. For tech to feel as natural as wearing a T-shirt, it'll need to soften up. That's what young entrepreneur Maddy Maxey believes: her new clothing line exploits UV-reactive inks to create interactive garments, making the combination of cloth and technology feel intuitive. Maxey worked with the digital printing partners at Print All Over Me to create clothing that changes patterns in response to light. The trick: photochromatic inks, which are made up of molecules that turn transparent when exposed to sunlight. Many of the designs make subtle allusions to math or science concepts.

Photochromia is on Kickstarter, where you can get a UV-reactive hat by donating $25.

Black glazing wraps one corner of a Mexican apartment block

Local architecture studio Proyecto Cafeína designed the six-storey apartment building – called Tadeo 4909 – for a corner plot in the centre of Puebla, situated around 80 miles south of Mexico City. Rather than fill the whole plot with living space, the architects arranged the building's eight duplex apartments around a partially open steel staircase in one corner of the site. This provides residents with access to a series of walkways and roof terraces. The gridded monochrome glass facade that wraps around the upper levels was conceived as a contrast to the "chaotic" urban area and criss-crossing electrical wires that surround the site, and features one raised corner covered in dark-tinted glass. Each of the apartments features a slight variation in layout from its neighbour.

Les Cascadeurs by Laurent Gongora interrupts the flow of a waterfall. Steel triangles protruded from a waterfall in central France to intervene with the cascade of water in this installation by artist Laurent Gongora.

Les Cascadeurs by Laurent Gongora interrupts the flow of a waterfall

Laurent Gongora attached 24 metal elements to the rock behind the Cascade de Vaucoux in France's mountainous Massif Central region to "redraw" the shape of the waterfall. Arranged in an eight-metre-high diamond formation, the pointed shapes stuck out through the falling water and diverted the torrent over their tops. "Looking at this huge cascade, I thought it would be interesting to tame the way water is falling," Gongora told Dezeen. "The graphics of the basaltic rocks around the waterfall made me want to build something very geometric. " The project's title, Les Cascadeurs, translates as "the stuntmen" and also relates to the French word for "waterfall". The small roofs were coloured black to match the local stone and were fixed onto a steel base frame hidden by the water. We Like: Klaus Haapaniemi.

blog - upon a fold

January 15, 2014 Something very beautiful I just watched and wanted to share. It’s a film by André Gidoin & The Makerie Studio. All filmed in camera, the horses on the carousel are spaced to spin in sync with the camera’s frame rate, creating the illusion of motion. Each one is carefully studied to follow the one before it, so that once animated they appear to be galloping. I also loved the music. Tweet this 30% OFF SALE...
