Philips’s Blushing dress (a not-for-market prototype) communicates your moods, and Sensoree’s Mood Sweater interprets the wearer’s emotions and communicates them back to the world. The MOOD SWEATER displays excitement levels instantly with an illuminated collar. It is a whimsical approach to new forms of communication inspired by the body. The sensors are located on the hands and reads excitement levels then translates the data into a palette of affective colors. The design of the high collar is positioned with LED lights that reflects onto the self for instant biofeedback as well as act as a tele-display or external blush for the other. Located around the larynx, the visual interface offers new forms of speaking.
The PHILIPS BLUSHING DRESS shows emotive technology and how the body and the near environment can use pattern and color change to interact and predict the emotional state.
