google glasses Wearable technology, la technologie InStyle ! La Wearable Technology, tout le monde en parle, mais le concept reste encore un peu abstrait. D’abord parce que la technologie se perfectionne à peine ; 2012 a vu naître les premiers projets réellement aboutis, fonctionnels et commercialisables. Ensuite parce que la Wearable Technology, c’est bien, c’est beau mais c’est cher ! Alors entrons dans le monde merveilleux de la « technologie qui se porte » ! Le principe : intégrer la technologie aux objets qui ne nous encombrent pas ceux que nous portons, en opposition à ceux que nous transportons. Selon fastcodesign.com, il existe 4 règles pour concevoir de la Wearable Tech que les gens vont réellement porter (comprenez acheter) : 1/ Comprendre et être attentif à l’environnement de l’utilisateur. 2/ Concevoir un objet discret. 3/ Créer une valeur ajoutée en le connectant à des services et des logiciels. 4/ Faire en sorte que l’objet ne soit pas marqué trop « geek ».

Washing Wearable Electronics The most common question we get regarding wearable electronics is "how do you wash that?" This guide covers the most common ways to launder your DIY wearable electronics projects. First, and always: remove the batteries! The fiberglass, plastic, and metal comprising most circuits can handle getting wet and a bit of agitation, but your batteries should never be bent, shorted, or be subject to water or heat. Second, read the label on your garment. Machine wash? Components that can fill with water, like the microphone in the Ampli-Tie, should never be submerged in water. If you hand or machine wash your wearables, we strongly recommend hanging them up or laying flat to dry.

Google reveals Android Wear, an operating system for smartwatches Google is officially getting into wearables. The company has announced Android Wear, a version of the operating system designed specifically for wearable devices. To start with, the system is made for smartwatches, and Google is moving aggressively to make itself the key name in wearables. The company has released two videos that show off what the watch interface will look like, and from what we've seen, it's very impressive. In addition, Motorola and LG have already revealed their first Android Wear smartwatches, which look more attractive than any smartwatches we've seen to date. Motorola's first device is featured in the picture above and the videos below. There are several key features that have been announced. The company will also be using Google Now in the watches. You'll also be able to say "OK Google" to perform voice searches, à la Google Now. In many ways, Android Wear seems like it's built off of the work the company did on Google Glass.

"Technology adds an incredible advantage to fashion design" Fashion and technology: in the first part of a series focusing on designers who are introducing the fashion world to new technologies, Dezeen speaks to architect Julia Körner about how advances in 3D scanning, modelling and printing are creating a "revolution in customised fashion pieces within ready to wear" (+ interview + slideshow). 3D-printed garments have become a common sight on the Haute Couture catwalks of designers like Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen. Austrian architect Julia Körner, who collaborated with Van Herpen on these digitally fabricated garments, is now working on transferring the technology used to create the elaborate garments into everyday clothing production as part of what she calls an "exciting moment in fashion design". "Body scanning and 3D-modelling techniques allow you to design towards a perfect fit, and through minimal changes in the code I can create variations of adaptations in the design," she told Dezeen.

Projet Jacquard : Google se met aux vêtements high-tech Les vêtements vont-ils devenir la prochaine extension de notre environnement numérique ? Alors que les objets et accessoires connectés commencent à peine à se démocratiser, Google planche déjà sur l'étape suivante avec les textiles intelligents. C'est ce qu'a dévoilé l'équipe responsable des programmes avancés (ATAP - Advanced Technology And Projects) lors de la conférence I/O. Baptisé Jacquard, en référence au métier à tisser construit par Joseph Marie Jacquard, ce projet consiste à ajouter des composants électroniques lors de la fabrication du vêtement (en coton, en soie, en polyester...) afin que celui-ci dispose d'une surface interactive qui réagira au toucher. Ainsi, les mouvements pourront être détectés et interprétés, mais aussi transmis à un terminal à proximité (un smartphone, par exemple). Début 2014, des universitaires du MIT ont par exemple mis au point une veste connectée qui fait ressentir physiquement au lecteur l'ambiance d'un roman et les émotions des protagonistes.
