Tender is a garment that exhibits a technical knit textile that incorporates programmable microchips in each pocket integrated into the material. Touch sensitive garment is one of many possible applications of the developed textile.
Tender is a garment that reacts to stroking. It lights up separate pockets on the body according to how they have been in contact with the skin. By stroking the garment it is possible to “move” the lighted part of the wearable. Tender represents the value of the new craftsmanship. It suggests the soft light and personalized interaction to be the luxury of today.
It is a first prototype that will be developed further as part of the ongoing CRISP project.
