1st Place Challenge 2018

Keypod

Clothes with Superpower: KeyPod aims to add interactivity to any apparel or accessory in order to enable the mobile-first generation to focus on the experience, on the here and now, while being on the move. The revolutionized embedded unit is small, light, washable and has years of life battery.

2nd Place Challenge 2018

Interknitting

The idea behind Interknitting is to make human communication visible using wearable knitted interfaces. Interknitting can make reactions visible through the use of different soft interfaces i.e. responding to sound, movement or touch. The status of interaction is made visible by LEDs embedded into the clothing.

3rd Place Challenge 2018

Radice

The idea of Radice is based on getting a good night’s sleep. While there are now plenty of apps aimed at helping users spend their everyday (working) life in a more structured and efficient way, Radice, with its innovative sleeping mask, is designed to help its user achieve a fresh and energetic start to the day.

The Mission

In times of digitization, technology gets more and more part of our lives. From health care to fitness/sport, over fashion and textiles, to interior design, even within the automotive industry – everything is getting smart and Deutsche Telekom is shaping a digital society and is driving digital lifestyle trends. Our mission is to turn visionary concepts into lifestyle reality. We are an enabler and a strong partner for the movers and shakers from the fields of smart textiles and technologies. With Fashion Fusion, we are making our costumer experience more complete, more tangible – personal, mobile, sustainable and always close to the body.

The Program

The goal of the Fashion Fusion program is to use digital technologies to connect apparel, accessories, and devices together intelligently in ways that provide their users with new and innovative benefits.
