Borre Akkersdijk is a fashion designer who has taken the concept of wearable device to the extreme, creating a garment that turns your body into a music player or an Internet access point.
With the BB.Suit, Akkersdijk aims to illustrate his vision of what should really be considered wearable. In this case, a garment made from 3D printing that offers us Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and Bluetooth and that turns the wearer into a mobile Internet access point. In addition, he tested the BB.Suit during SXSW, inviting different musicians to upload their songs to an online playlist that the suit itself emitted, demonstrating that wearable technology does not have to settle for screens in order to offer a good user experience.
The problem Akkersdijk now finds himself with is that the production of these garments is still quite complicated and expensive, because in order to create the fabric it is necessary to join the yarn fibers with some conductor, such as copper.
