Wearable electronic building bricks

February 1st, 2011 / By: / Advanced Textiles, New Products

Studio 5050 and Blacklabel Development, New York, N.Y., have launched a collection of soft, wearable, electronic modules or “bricks” that allow designers to focus on the creative aspects of making functioning, wearable electronic garments. The initial Fabrickit launch includes a rechargeable battery, connectors and light bricks that connect to each other with a conductive fabric ribbon to power and illuminate. The ribbon forms the backbone of the Fabrickit system, as it permits easy connections between bricks, seamless integration with garments and provides superior electrical properties while remaining washable and flexible.
