The technology industry has experienced many changes over the past decades. Variations in the sector depend on what the people consider to be fashionable. Currently, there’s a fusion of fashion and technology. Fashion designers always desire to create the best products, and doing so with the use of technology makes it easier for them. A good example is an airbag for cyclists, a protection system that is worn around the neck. It was designed by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin and pops to protect the head during accidents. When it is not opened, the cyclist has a better view of the surroundings so we can conclude that the piece of technology is better than a helmet.
Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan created Frontline Gloves to protect firefighters. These gloves allow the firefighters to communicate when in the scene of a fire, so it contributes a lot to their safety. The use of recycled material is also becoming common among fashion designers, for instance, Segrasegra, designer, used recycled inner tubes of bicycles to make t-shirts and jackets. Designers also realized that fashion and technology could be used to create electrical energy during movement. The energy can power gadgets like watches. As the years go by, it is evident that the technological and fashion industry could work together to create great things.
