Similar to our Digital House prototype this gear facilitates communication and connection to our Global-Culture. It is clothing of the 21st century.
In this Digital-Gear the body suit is made of a material which has a grid of LED lights woven into it and activated by a layer of paper batteries. These LED's could be activated to reveal your inner emotions through the language of emoticons.
Emoticons are used by the digital-generation to compensate for the inability to convey voice inflections, facial expressions, and bodily gestures in written communication. Emoticons are very effective toward avoiding misinterpretation of intents. It is about speed and precision in communication.
We speak different languages and yet we interact, communicate and participate in a conversation. Who we are is what we wear, what we feel and what we can potentially say.
