Links from September Nerdnite
At last month’s Nerdnite, we had some technical problems that kept Ada Brunstein from showing her videos of weird technology/fashion hybrids. As promised, here are the links.
Ada’s talk was based on her article “The Little Black Piezoelectric Dress” in the Atlantic Monthly.
“Intimate controllers” by JennyLC Chowdhury. This is the video game you play by touching your partner in special places.
Sound reactive nightgown by Sarah Soriano. This is the nightgown that lifts up when your lover whispers sweet nothings to you. Or shouts them, in the case of the current iteration of the technology.
And the Grand Finale: Hussain Chalayan’s Spring/Summer 2007 collection. FYI: Video ends with a moderately NSFW moment. More stills of the same fashion here.
There was one more video for Suzi Webster’s Barking Mad garment, but the video was broken when I surfed on by. There are other interesting videos of odd garments on her site though…and maybe it will be fixed soon…so it may be worth checking it out.
Last, but not least, all three of our great speakers from last month have their own websites. So if you want to know more about their work, check out these links:
Thanks for posting the sites! I also wanted to point to the ‘Tricks of the Trade’ Facebook page:
