Project Jacquard

Project Jacquard is a new system for weaving technology into fabric, transforming everyday objects, like clothes, into interactive surfaces. Project Jacquard will allow designers and developers to build connected, touch-sensitive textiles into their own products. This is just the beginning, and we’re very excited to see what people will do with it.

Make it Wearable

Wearables are the latest technology trend out there (together with the Internet of Things) and almost all the companies are trying to jump into this market somehow. Some of them are creating technology for it while some others are imagining the future that a technology like that will enable. I am not sure if everyone is following the correct path that will bring us all the amazing goodies (that are going to improve our lives) but who am I to judge this! Intel is one of those companies and is looking for the innovators who will design the next big wearable technology. Enter the Make It Wearable Challenge to find out here

The Vertu Constellation

We’ve already heard about custom handmade cars, jewellery, wearables etc. But never anything around mobile phones. Those are mass produced by factories in China (or around there for some other manufacturers) and look exactly the same. Every year or so, we have new models and the wheel goes round and round! But this is going to change because of Vertu, a UK based company. Each new Vertu Constellation is handmade in England by a single craftsman and they look… interesting! They are saying that “only once they are entirely happy with it, do they put their name to it”. Almost the same motto from all the hand made oriented companies out there. Actually I don’t like the design of the phones so much. Neither the philosophy at least on this market. Yes, the making process is amazing and the video help to present that even better. But I am not entirely convinced so far. Find out more here
