3D Printing – from fabric to tissue

A ready-to-wear 3D-printed bikini. A breakthrough in fashion + technology.

This statement you can read on the website of  Continuum presenting their newest design: The N12 Bikini.

Why running through a shop searching the perfect fitting swimwear when you are also able to fill out some boxes and Continuum will print a bikini for you?

Some of you may wonder how it will look like… A piece of paper on my body? Ready to wear in the water? 

Continuum combines exciting emerging tech with a sensibility for beautiful, wearable design.

Looks familiar, right? But how is it possible?

In my this week’s post I’ll try to find an answer how this technology works and I’ll promise that my post will end completely unexpected.

Google Wallet & Security – Friends or Foes?

In my today’s post I want to have a deeper look into the topic security concerning Google’s newest invention- The Google Wallet (You can find further information about this future wallet in my Blog post the week before!).

The new electronic wallet should be a boon for customer convenience. Users can leave their credit cards at home and get rid of the whole gathering of different credit cards.

But how secure will this method be? Do hackers have an easy game? Are thieves benefited? This bunch of question is buzzing through my head and I think I’m not the only one.

The multifunctional wallet- Google Wallet

A phone that is fitting into a wallet? That was yesterday… Nowadays, your phone is your wallet.

Ok. Of course the so called PaperPhone (I wrote about it 2 weeks ago) that could lie next to your credit cards in your wallet is not old-fashioned. But a few days ago I got to know Google’s newest invention- The Google Wallet.

As you can read at The Official  Google Blog

Google Wallet is a key part of our ongoing effort to improve shopping for both businesses and consumers. It’s aimed at making it easier for you to pay for and save on the goods you want, while giving merchants more ways to offer coupons and loyalty programs to customers, as well as bridging the

gap between online and offline commerce.

But how exactly does this technology work? How can a smartphone owner actually use this new invention?

Try it virtual- The Virtual Fitting Room.

Changing clothes can be very fraught, exhausting and tiring. Not the right color, not the right size, not the right style… And then is the fitting room so uncomfortable and tight. The light makes everything even worse- it underlines all problem areas in a very unfriendly and unflattering way.

All these factors can lead to desperation right up to a real shopping disaster!

BUT. This week I found a very interesting invention that will hopefully reduce the whole set of problems- the virtual fitting room!

There you can try clothes on every second without actually having to put it on. Relaxing, isn’t it? Continue reading


thin, thinner, PaperPhone

Today everything has to be thin, smart and trendy. Not only on the runway but also in other areas the slogan is “the thinner the better”.

We can see this phenomenon also in information technology. Laptops, notebooks, smart phones. Everything becomes more and more flatter and lighter. Today, Apple’s iPhone 4 is the flattest smart phone…but what will happen next week or even tomorrow?

The answer is the paper phone- the phone of the future, fitting into the purse.

Fit yourself into the screen

In this article I want to present a new startup from Berlin that introduced a new method to measure the body dimensions with the aid of a normal webcam. It shall facilitate the online shopping and reduce return shipments.

At my interest in new innovations I’m always looking for new inventions, especially concerned with the simplification of the daily life.

A few days ago, I found an interesting article in Die Welt about a new startup from Berlin called UPcload. After explaining what the innovation is about I’d like to give my opinion. Feel free to comment, to (dis-)agree or to give new ideas!
