Protective Accessories That Combine Technology And Fashion

There have been many ongoing developments in the fashion aspect of modern generations. In fact, fashion, and attire in overall, is one of the most significant aspects of modern cultural civilization and integration. The fashion has been evolving and trending just as fast as technology in various aspects and designers have started integrating the two. The advancements in technology come at the best time when there is increased need for security. Incorporating such efficiency into fashion is quite inspiring.

The manufacturers of these designs have been able to incorporate this new realization in various sectors of fashion including clothing, mainly upper-body wear, footwear and fashion accessories like necklaces, bracelets, watches or mobile phones. The breakthroughs of these designs will be the new goal of companies that have been pursuing to combine technology and fashion. Here are some examples:

The Aposematic Jacket

This is one of the upper wear fashion items and is simply like most jackets from all eye angles and is designed by Seoul design studio. The difference is that their glittering accessories that look flashy and provide its characteristic elegant look contain cameras. The cameras are located in some or all of the hidden accessories. The cameras are capable of capturing images and sending them wirelessly to a mobile device like an android or apple smartphone or any other gadget with such wireless capabilities. When worn, the jacket cameras are in constant capture and are also designed to sense peculiar occurrences and give warning signs. According to studio co-founder Yong Hun Kim, the jacket allows those who wear it to record their environments and render it to a designated page wirelessly. This is an added advantage since pictures of the environment can be published to other public or private pages as desired. Thus, it offers both instant protection and secondary co-ordinated protection. Those kidnapped, in dangerous circumstances, delicate and unstable or any in any other state that poses risks can easily use this advantage. By designating the captured environment to other self-chosen pages, it provides another form of monitoring and protection since immediate danger can be sensed by others who may then coordinate protection. Additionally, the cameras’ protection overlaps since it records all surrounding and this way can be used to provide evidence in court proceedings as “recorded deeds last beyond time and space.” They can also be used to protect shop items among other benefits that are brought about by this form of surveillance. Apparently, this is the only ethical issues associated with the jacket. Other than that, it provides indisputable efficiencies in protection as a piece of fashion, design and technology merged.

Reflective Fabric

This is another interesting innovation announced by Dutch Design 2014 and has received tremendous remarks. The fabric is designed to reflect the excessive effects of sunlight and subsequently its exposure, thus making is the rider’s ultimate choice. The technology includes use of retro-reflective fabric which is woven into the cycling garment and suits. This ensures light is reflected and bounces off creating an immediate cooler surrounding to allow more cycling. This also prevents the negative effects of UV lights, sunlight and heat exposure. However, the gears do not only provide this form of protection, but they are also incorporated with reflective elements that turn them into safety garments. They reflect light and form the glowing impression on traffic coming from behind as well as those ahead. While cycling gears are generally made for protection and not necessarily fashion, these garments offer protection from both physical injury and sunlight exposures. Besides, and as part of the closet, it is a design that can be worn often. The woven retro-reflective light properties of the back section of the garment will shine at night and is quite invisible during the day. They can therefore be used any time of the event including during events and enthusiast parties when members have a dress code in place. Besides, the suit resembles contemporary neon jackets and can be worn for other occasions other than cycling.

The Spiky Shoe

This is a new development in footwear and is chiefly a women’s design rather than unisex. The shoes are designed like other show and catwalk event fashion wear. The difference is that it features magnetically attracted spikes which accessorize their look to give the distinct, classy, elegant and creative appeal. On the other side these spikes are strongly held in place and offer various forms of protection. From creepy crawlers to self defense against aggressive animals among other things, these shoes are designed to serve as elegant fashion footwear with accessories that offer protection as bonus. The mergence of fashion and technology comes when iron filling and resin are used instead the usual resin and other plastic polymer. The mixture is used around a base shoe then the soft plastic material is let to settle in place. However, before settling, a special magnet is used to pull some parts of the material so that it becomes spiky across the surface. This gives the characteristic thorny impression similar to how iron forms spike lines around magnet edges or poles. The simplicity of this technology, with the special magnet being its only outstanding breakthrough, is quite incredible and shoes of various designs can be modeled using the same process. It also allows the variance of colors thus perfect as a fashion footwear and protection wear. Moreover, their insides are soft to the heel and not in any way uncomfortable.

There are many other great protective accessories available including the geometric necklace, sound recording watches and bracelets and eyewear glass ranges that act as accessories while offering better and a wider field of sight.

Companies that combine technology with fashion and other aspects of modern civilization can only be expected to increase. This is propelled by the need to harness emerging innovations from the current generation who was born at the threshold of technological advancements of the day. The advancements in technology and expanded opportunities for imagination and creativity have opened up new efficiency dimensions to fashion and accessories used in our society.
