Intel at NY Fashion Week

It’s been a few years running now and Intel is owning Fashion Week in New York.  They’ve supported and enabled a number of wearable tech projects this year.

Here are 3 projects Intel was a part of this Fall.

1- TOME used Intel® Curie technology to create a bracelet “that will help women improve their health and the quality of their day by staying connected on-the-go.”  They also created proof of concept bags to detect “ambient temperature, toxic gases and barometric pressure sending helpful alerts to live a more informed life.”

3- VOKE is a virtual reality start-up that does a lot with 360 videos (the difference?).  13 designers used their technology this year to live-cast their runway shows in full stereoscopic 3D.  Voke raised a Series A earlier this yearlead by Intel.  Check out the Engadget Article.

Stereoscopic  – is taking multiple images at slightly different angles and stitching them together for the impression of depth.
