Google is collaborating with H&M’s digital fashion house Ivyrevel for the Coded Couture project, which will make a customized item of fashion known as the Data Dress.
The project will use Google’s Snapshot API and Awareness API, with the application that will help in the formation of the Data Dress now in restricted alpha testing.
Google’s Awareness API
In the Google I/O developer’s conference last year, the organization revealed the Awareness API. Applications will have the capacity to comprehend the area of users, what they are doing there, and what is close-by, permitting them to respond more intelligently to the circumstances and environment of the user.
To accomplish this, the Awareness API uses every one of the sensors of a cell phone. A gadget’s sensors will have the capacity to detect things, for example, if the user is walking or driving, locations via close-by Bluetooth signals, climate conditions, if the earphones are plugged in, and other rather particular details.
The Awareness API can be deemed fairly startling for users who are worried about their privacy, however if users do consent to being monitored by it, the API can have extremely useful applications. Evidently, one of these utilizations is to make customized dresses.
Coded Couture App For The Data Dress
An Android application under the Coded Couture venture is being created that will have the capacity to screen the exercises and way of life of users, upon their consent, as powered by the Awareness API close by the Snapshot API.
The thought behind the Data Dress is that it will have the capacity to translate the wearer’s way of life into an exceptional, fashionable look. The dress will for the most part show the routes the wearer takes and his or her daily routine as map lines, and will be made in the style that the user will pick, whether for gatherings, work, or formal occasions. Other things for example, shading, embellishments, and material will be founded on the information that the project’s application will gather.
The application is as of now being tried by many worldwide style influencers, including Kenza Zouiten, the co-founder of Ivyrevel. Ivyrevel is planning to begin the cost of the Data Dress at $99, however that is still subject to change. There is likewise no arranged launch date for the application yet, however it is expected to be launched some time this fall.
