As London-based label, Cute Circuit, releases an extended promotion video of their tshirtOS project, the team at 8 Ball reflect on how technology is shaping the industry.

8 Ball also go on to explain how science fiction and technology forms a strong basis for many of their own designs.

The tshirtOS project is the latest offering from a string of hi-tech fashion incorporating flexible LED screens into its collections. This particular item is a wi-fi enabled cotton t-shirt which includes a 1,024 pixel screen, powered by a USB-charged battery pack. Described as “the world’s most advanced piece of digital clothing” by the Shoreditch Company, the tee costs some £20,000. Currently the product is still a prototype but designers are keen to introduce it to the high street.

Known for their original and quirky take on the market, UK-based firm, 8 Ball, reacted to the recent news with great interest. A representative from the specialist retailer shares his thoughts on the new project.

“Cute Circuit has already put LED clothing on the market but this latest offering really does push the boundaries of modern design. It will be interesting to see whether the design does actually make it to the high street.”

8 Ball also go on to explain how science fiction and technology forms a strong basis for many of their own designs.

“Many of our collections are inspired by popular internet phrases or terms, as well as TV shows influenced by technology. Feedback from our customers has shown that these are some of our most popular collections so we will continue to pursue this venture.”

8 Ball look forward to researching these developments further.
