The technology and fashion industries have undergone multiple changes over the years. Over the years, it has been evident that the two industries grow together. At one instance, technology becomes fashionable and on another fashion becomes technologically fashionable. A glance at the past and present shows an exciting journey and what is expected of the future.
A Glimpse of The Past
In the 70s boom box was fashionable in the music industry. During this time the two cassette decks, which could play music and record at the same time were very popular. Twenty years later, the Walkman was invented. In the 21st century, iPods, which are smaller, became the most preferred by many. Judging from the past, what is fashionable has been judged based on the size of the gadget.
In today’s world, technology and fashion are being married to increase quality and attractiveness of products. For instance, fashion designers are now exploring technology to bring higher innovative standards and better functionality. Fashion experts utilize technology as a playground to experiment. Fashion designers believe that technology holds a lot of possibilities and it rewards handsomely.
Foreseeing the Future
Fashion developers are keen to explore technology in a way to protect humans. However, the challenge in this category is developing a current technology that will protect the user. For instance, wearing helmets helps reduce the severity of an accident. However, these helmets are not fashionable, and they reduce visibility.
In a move to solve this problem, cyclist airbags that are stylish, protective and doesn’t reduce visibility are in the pipeline. The airbags will be worn on the neck area and pop out of the neckwear to protect the cyclist head from an impact.
Moreover, other developers are trying to marry technology and fashion to create energy. Since movements can be converted to electric power, the new clothes will be able to produce energy to power watches, mp3, and cell phones.
The Symbiotic Relationship
Fashion and technology can grow together or require assistance from each other. They work hand in hand to perfect each other. A better tomorrow will, therefore, be determined by how much the two industries will learn from each other.
