In our contemporary world fashion is synonymous with style, dress, adornment, decoration and clothing. However, what most people don’t realize is that as a communication medium, fashion has unlimited potential. For instance, Electric Foxy’s Ping is a garment that connects to your Facebook account wirelessly and from anywhere. It allows you to stay connected to your friends simply by performing natural gestures that are built into the mechanics of the garments we wear. For example, a sensor is integrated into the hood allowing the natural gesture of lifting the hood and putting it back down to communicate to Facebook. Lifting up the hood automatically sends a message and updates your status. Putting the hood back down sends another message. A Facebook application allows you to customize your messages, assign them to groups of friends and even manage many different types of messages based on where you are, who you’re pinging, or what your mood is. While this project is still in the works, Cute Circuit, another brand that focuses solely on developing wearable technology, dressed musician, Nicole Scherzinger in their Haute Couture Twitter Dress.
