Technology has brought the consumers a long way. In the 70’s the boom box was born. Allowing the consumer to carry it around while listening to their favorite music. Then cassette decks came in two’s. That meant you could listen to the one music on one deck, while the other deck recorded songs. Jumping ahead to the 90’s, their was a walkman in almost everyone’s pocket. The Walkman gave listeners a more personal experience while listening to music. Currently, iPods are taking the market by storm. The iPod is smaller in size, allowing the user to gain access to thousands of apps as well as play music.
The Future holds endless possibilities as technology continues to advance. Protective gear is always evolving. Terese Alstin created an airbag for cyclist. Its a system worn around the neck so that it doesn’t lack the visibility that a helmet gives. Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan created Frontline Gloves for Firefighters. This allows firemen to communicate with each other through simple hand gestures.
Technology and Fashion can be combined and create energy. Movement can easily be converted into electrical energy. Now items such as mP3 players and watches can be powered by kinetic energy.
Technology and fashion can come together. Google Glass is intriguing. The only problem there is the ignominy of wearing glasses. Another is the cost. The average person wouldn’t be able to afford them. Top fashion designer, Diane Von Furstenbery, had her models wear the glasses on the catwalk. This paved the way and the popularity with the glasses amongst other fashions. This shows the consumer how technology creates beautiful and functional fashions.
