Remote-Folding Shirt #WearableWednesday

Madi Maxey and Mari Kussman (aka CRATED) have been experiementing at a residency at the Visible Futures Lab at SVA, and Zygomatic is one of their prototypes:

Zygomatic is a tessellating shirt controlled by a computer interface. We think this is just a small segue to modular clothing systems and a different kind of manufacturing. The pattern for this garment is essentially a square and has minimal waste, making it (hypothetically) simple to produce.

We believe that technology should integrate seamlessly into wearables. With this in mind, Zygomatic’s “brain” attaches to a tag at the back-neck, allowing the shirt to function normally when not attached to a computer.
