Tech Meets Fashion in a Fascinating Mash Up

Technology and fashion combine to create an addictive experience that is may not remain to exotic for long. Since the 1970s technology has entered the human psyche as something that is always fashionable. In the true spirit of keeping up with the Joneses we now have to have the latest in gadgets that give is convenience and signal our purchasing power. The combination of fashion and technology then, would be natural. This is exactly what is happening in the high fashion fields. How long will it be before the average Joe is sporting a set of iPants? Maybe not next century.


The combination of technology and high fashion is officially becoming a movement. Fashion designers love what delivers, and technology does exactly that. Consumers are hard-wired to find satisfaction from electronic devices, so why not use this trend in the fashion? Innovation and functionality should and can work together. Anouk Wipprecht, Dutch fashion designer and technology enthusiast is a key part of this effort to marry the realms of fashion and tech. She states in a recent interview that technology is like a playground. Wipprecht is known for her imaginative designs. She has created a self-painting dress and cocktail making dress. Technology doesn’t mean a lack of concern over the environment. In fact, tech fashion designers are recycling materials to create new and appealing lines that appeal to techies and hippies alike.

Netflix Plan to Revolutionize How We Watch TV

So far this year, Netflix has released 17 original series. What is so special about this you may be asking? They are all internet based broadcasting. A new way for us to enjoy our television in the modern world. The original internet only programming is just the tip of the iceberg for Netflix plans to revolutionize the way we watch television.

Just three short years after releasing their first exclusive original programing, Netflix has planned 320 hours worth of original programming for this year. That is over 13 days worth of binge watching to do!

Reed Hastings, Netflix’s chief executive stated, “We’ve had 80 years of linear TV, and it’s been amazing, and in its day the fax machine was amazing. The next 20 years will be this transformation from linear TV to Internet TV.” (Check out the YouTube video on the future of internet TV)

Traditional TV as we know it is a dying form of media. The major factor contributing to it’s death is the fact it is impersonal to people. When television was released, due to technical limitations and social, programming was created for the masses on a scheduled time. Now with Netflix, people are able to watch what they want and when they want (similar to how people are using Homejoy). Giving viewers what they want when they want is only half of the formula. Providing good content is key to making internet tv work. The more amazing, exclusive content, the more people will want to watch, the more people will jump on the internet tv bandwagon. Change is coming, better stock up on your snacks for a future of internet tv binge watching!

Is Michael Keaton Traveling to Skull Island?

Up from the ashes, an iconic fantasy-film character arises and so does a great actor whom we have not heard much from in many years.

According to hmi-international, the prequel to King Kong, titled King Kong: Skull Island, is in pre-production and talks are going on with Michael Keaton to appear in the film.  I cannot wait to see this film with my friend Christopher Cowdray. Keaton recently had a career comeback of sorts in the film Birdman. Prior to that, we had not heard much from the former iconic 1980’s actor.

All it takes is one good role for producers to come calling. In a film like Skull Island, the true star is Kong. Including the right cast of supporting humans does help flesh the film out (literally, since Kong is pure CGI) and provide the human melodrama required for the film to succeed.

A new King Kong film follows the marginally disappointing Peter Jackson remake. (The film did make money) It may seem a little curious as to why anyone would wish to make a new film when King Kong did so weak at the box office. Giant monsters are the rage again thanks to Godzilla and the upcoming Jurassic World. Science-fiction and fantasy have made a huge comeback, too. So, the ground it fertile for a new “Eight Wonder of the World” project. Considering this is a prequel, we’ll definitely be getting a lot more dinosaurs and a lot less of New York City getting thrashed.
