Modern culture is largely influenced by fashion and technology. Those two seemingly unrelated categories have been the biggest topics of discussion on social media if we don’t count controversial topics. Over the many years of development of both fashion and technology, the two entities have today come together and become inseparable in some cases. Fashion designers no longer wish to stick strictly to conventional fabrics. An increasing number of fashion designers have been reaching for more unconventional resources to use them for their creations. On the other side of the spectrum, technology developers have become more mindful on how their products look instead of neglecting the visual aspect. The have started opting in for elegance and precision in order to make them more appealing and to have a sense or art in what they put on the market.
In one of his more recent articles, serial entrepreneur Chris Burch takes a journey through time and goes back to the 70s – the era of the boom box. He traces the development of the boom box from a chunky heavy machine oriented only towards its function to play music, to its modern version which is the sleek modern gadget that easily fits in the pocket of your jeans and is only a tiny fraction of the size on the boom box. Another topic in Chris Burch’s article is the obvious change on the fashion runways. Many fashion designers have expanded their creativity to a point where they have started using unorthodox materials such as recycled plastic or metals or old newspapers. Amazing things can happen, in fact, when fashion and technology go hand in hand. A type of clothing was created that can turn kinetic energy into a usable power source through its movement. The electric energy the clothing creates is not enough to be used for big things, but it can easily charge a mp3 player, a watch or another type of small gadget.
