These days most of us like to think that we dress with a certain flair of originality, though with the vast majority of items we purchase being produced on truly epic proportions any true sense of individuality is not gained by the use of any single item, per se, but rather by the combinations of items we opt for.
And, though merely a concept at this stage, these shoes from Inventables, which utilise what’s termed as ‘cholesteric’ LCD technology could show the way for offering clothing and attire which can be programmed to display patterning of our choice via a simple prompt from a device such as a cell phone.
In practice what this means is that you can adapt the aesthetics of your clothing on the fly, and at a moment’s notice, by calling up a pattern from a library of stored imagery to suit the occasion, your mood or just in case who spot someone else with the same pattern activated as you.
Sounds a little too far fetched? These Cholesteric LCD Shoes are based on actual technologies that already exist.
