Fashion technology is at it again. It’s back with a big bang its come with ‘Ping’ by its side. Ping is developed by Jennifer Darmour, is a socially networked garment that allows you to stay connected with your Facebook pals off-screen. So your dream of never signing out of Facebook may come true with this idea. Its possible to send messages and update status messages by just a simple action of wearing the hood and taking it off.
On receiving a comment from a friend the wearer experiences a gentle tap on his shoulder. I like the idea of assigning different tapping rhythms for different groups so you know if you are receiving messages from your friends or foes. The garment has been created using the Lilypad and Lilypad Xbee.
