Have you ever had the age-old problem of being without anything to wear? Imagine clothing that can change patterns at any time with the simple push of a button.
Adobe recently introduced "Project Primrose," a state-of-the-art "digital dress" that is completely interactive.
The ground-breaking gown is made of sequins that also function as "reflective light-diffuser modules" using liquid crystals similar to those used in smart lighting.
The project incorporates a number of technologies and programs that were employed to create the spectacular outcome. Project Primrose, according to Adobe, employs breathable, stretchable, non-emissive materials that enable a whole surface to display content made with Adobe Stock, After Effects, Firefly, and Illustrator. The technology can be used by end users for a variety of other applications, such as furniture, purses, or other articles of apparel, even though the company used an interactive dress to demonstrate the concept, reports TechSpot.
The idea might provide consumers with a new way to engage with fashion and their surroundings in addition to enabling designers and artists to develop new, interactive patterns. People could download and wear cutting-edge patterns from their favorite designers or even make their own, saving them from having to go out and buy another dress, shirt, or pair of shoes.
Dierk's love of technology and fashion have merged in this endeavor, and she is no stranger to either. Dr. Dierk has vast expertise in creating and using wearable technology and has a Ph.D. in computer science from U.C. Berkeley. She enjoys working with a variety of materials and patterns to develop her fashion designs. She is also an established and competent seamstress.
There is no information on whether or when Project Primrose will be accessible to customers and designers since it is only a proof of concept. But it's safe to assume that Dr. Dierk's tech-driven outfits won't be the last we see given the project's positive initial response.
