“Fashion for me is about expression and communication, but the things we wear at the moment are 'analog.’ Putting electronics in fashion opens up a whole new world of possibilities on how we can express and communicate ourselves." The Dutch designer also notes that “the relationship between the body and technology is closer than ever. Electronic systems can now be layered seamlessly onto a material. Embedded processors and sensors for transmitting and receiving information create a vision of cultural transformation that is both exciting and disturbing.”
The three day conference will feature over 75 presenters and the opportunity to see augmented and virtual reality along with 3D printing, robotics, motion graphics, interactive film and everything digital. In addition to the speaker series you can also see the technology and hardware displays on the exhibition floor. Oh, and I understand there will be parties as well.
