BB.Suit turns you into a walking WiFi hotspot

Have you ever thought about becoming a wireless router and being the hotspot and not having to carry a router everywhere around with you? Seems like we are getting close to this concept and one day it will be perfected. Fashion designer Borre Akkersdijk has brought forward this concept and though it is not entirely spot on, it is extremely close to what this new fantasy is.

The designer has been working on his BB.Suit which so far is only experimental and is a goofy-looking cotton onesie. It has not been knitted the normal way in fact it makes use of a special 3D technique which leaves spaces in between for the WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC connections and this is what is going to turn the owner of the suit into an access point himself. The experimental suit was presented at South by Southwest where it became a roving jukebox: attendees could both track it on Google Maps and upload songs through it to create a special playlist.

So only two prototypes exist of this BB.Suit but designer Akkersdijk is sure that it has a lot of potential to evolve into something bigger. He says that he has envisioned something more advanced and for that he would like to work in collaboration with the technology companies and create a smart clothing platform.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
