Timing is everything: happened upon Anouk Wipprecht at Makerfaire, as she was preparing to introduce the prototype of her futuristic gum ball-shooting dress. Anouk was running late for her flight, so she was not able to present the piece on stage, but I was able to grab a few shots of the dress on her model before it was whisked away.
Dutch fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht assembling the Particle Dress on site at Makerfaire Bay Area. Individuals were invited to design their own pieces from templates, then send 3D-printed creations to Anouk for assembly at the Autodesk booth. Each of the hexagonal pieces was unique. Some were illuminated, and one piece even spun around like a pimp's hubcap. Makerbots at the booth provided some last-minute printing.
Fitness tracker, mobile payments, messaging, notifications and more. Useful tools, but most features require having a connected phone nearby. Not a stand-alone wearable, but an extension or remote for the phone that is already in your pocket or purse. I'm not sold...yet.

Orange is the new black...in tech. Lenovo Yoga 2 ultrabook and Fitbit Flex, photographed for the new Engadget Buyers Guide. Glad that more and more tech companies are introducing more colorful hardware. It took years for computer makers to move from beige boxes to black and silver machines. Thanks to fashionable wearables, and phone makers like Nokia/Microsoft, tech is finally getting some color!
3D pen from Creopop. Ultraviolet light hardens cool-to-the-touch "ink" as you "draw". This is the same technology that dentists are using to "cure" modern dental work. The refills have to be kept out the light, or they will harden and become useless. Fun use of this technology, although the freehand nature of the device requires a steady hand to avoid sloppy-looking sculptures Click image for more photos.
The RoboTar allows you to play a guitar with one hand. You strum with one hand, and select pre-programmed chords with a foot pedal. Inspired by a stroke victim who lost the use of one arm, and could no longer play his guitar. The device is quite bulky, but hopefully future funding will allow them to downsize the components and streamline the look. It does, after-all, have to fit on a standard guitar. Perhaps they can design an instrument from scratch, for one-handed players. Click on image for more photos
