SXSW x ByBorre: The BB.SuitClothing

Beste bezoeker,

Welkom bij het Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. U bent nu ingelogd op de BB.Suit, een platform dat speciaal voor SXSW 2014 tot stand is gekomen dankzij een samenwerking tussen ByBorre, Martijn ten Bhomer van de TUe, Want.nl, 22tracks & CRISP. De BB.Suit is de eerste stap voor de creatie van een nieuw platform waarmee interactie tussen de gebruiker, omstanders en het web ontstaat. In de nabije toekomst zal dit platform om en op het lichaam talloze functies bieden, net zoals de telefoon niet meer bedoeld is om er alleen mee te bellen. Esthetiek is naast de techniek en web de belangrijke schakel om de aandacht van omstanders te trekken. Hieronder leest u het volledige verhaal van de BB.Suit en het concept voor het SXSW-festival.

BB.Suit

Welcome to the BB.Suit at SXSW 2014. This suit is to show that wearable technology will be the future. A future where people wearing hi-tech clothes is the most natural thing in the world. The concept is the result of a great collaboration between ByBorre (a fabric innovation brand), Martijn ten Bhomer from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), 22Tracks (a music platform), CRISP, Daan Spangenberg Graphics and Want.nl (a Dutch online magazine about Technology and Gadgets). Together, we want to show the ideas and concepts we have about wearable technology. We think garments are one of the exciting futures for interface design, connecting the wearer to people and places, becoming the ideal interface for many new user experiences.

 

 

Follow the BB.Suit

It started with the health industry. We were making pillows for people with dementia to make conversation with them through vibration. This is because there other senses are not reacting very well anymore. From there we moved on. Byborre developed a new way of 3d knitting with imbedding the technology inside. The BB.Suit contains full Wifi and GPS. The idea with this beautiful piece of wearable technology is that people can find the BB.Suit through GPS, so you can follow his way at SXSW. Stay up-to-date of all the great things at SXSW.

Music

For the music part of the festival we have a special feature. Working together with our favorite online music platform 22tracks we looked into how we could bring the DNA of the festival, the BB.Suit and 22tracks together. As 22tracks is all about the newest local music and SXSW is all about the newest musicians we will bring those together with the BB.Suit.

When Musicians or there bookers find the BB.Suit, they can upload there songs directly on to the suit. We will have our own BB.SXSW 22tracks List during the festival showcasing our 22 favorites musicians and there songs! Check our own BB.SXSW 22tracks List below and let the fine tunes entering your ears.

If you can’t find the suit you can always e-mail the suit at [email protected] and send the suit your newest Tracks!
