Burch has recently commented on the way that fashion and technology work together to produce clothing and accessories that are both functional and aesthetically sound. One example of how technology and fashion trends have worked together is the advent of the boom box, which was quickly replaced by the Walkman and now the iPod. These devices have changed color and shape, similar to clothing, and are marketed to consumers who both tech-savvy and fashion-forward.
Other fashion and technology marriages have been introduced to the public as a means of protection, such as the Airbag for Cyclists created by Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt. This airbag is worn around the neck and can protect the head from impact if a cyclist is in an accident. Frontline Gloves, which were created by Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Cannon are another technological fashion device that are ideal for firefighters. The gloves help to submit helpful information to firefighters through non-verbal communication, so that these professionals will know when to leave a building or fire scene.
Of course, there are also ways to create fashion from recycled materials. Designer Emma Whiteside made a large formal gown with recycled radiator copper, and SegraSegra has recently the inner tubes of bicycles to create t-shirts and jackets. Clothes are also being developed to create energy, such as garments that capture kinetic energy to power watches and mp3 players, and designer Soledad Martin is working on shoes that charge a cell phone while the wearer is walking or running in them.
