Tech and Fashion – QR Codes and Clothing

With mobile technology being a permanent fixture in our culture now, there’s no reason why it shouldn’t start being part of our fashion too, right? Well, with QR Codes printed on apparel – digital now meets textile. A QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode that stands for Quick Response. No doubt you’ve seen them before – probably most recently in a magazine advertisement or on a billboard or poster. They are readable by cameras and mobile phones. Once it’s scanned, the information in the code will most like likely point you to a URL somewhere online.

While QR Codes on t-shirts and scarfs are nothing new, Seattle designer Sam Trout is pushing the geek chic a bit further with his new QR Code t-shirt line.  Says the designer: “with the QR code as its base, the men’s design adds strength and boldness across the chest, while the women’s design adds length and accentuates the waist and neckline.”

……………………

Men’s QR Code-a-licious……………………………….Women’s QR Code-a-licious

When you scan the codes on the shirt, you’ll see different photos chosen by Trout. He intends on announcing a scavenger hunt at a later date that will start from one of the codes on the shirt with prizes awarded to the winners. Check out his site for more info.

    love the creativity and the incorporation of fashion and technology.

  2. Iain Haywood says:

    Bit of a shameful plug I know, but since everyone’s so keen on QR codes all of a sudden, I made a little QR code generator that everyone can use :)

    No worries Iain! I’ll check it out.

    Personally, I don’t see them as adding any particular value to me as a tool. What do you use them for?

    On the topic of geek clothing, I figured I’d mention the fashionable jewelry I make from discarded electronics circuit boards for some shameless self promotion.

    Ever wanted to wear part of a motherboard as a necklace? Now ya can :)

    @HexInverter – Sick! Can you make me a tie?!!!!

  6. Sam says:

    @Ali – Are you saying that because it’s too short? It’s actually a tunic style t-shirt. We just happened to be on the beach that day and it worked with the model. I can totally understand why you wouldn’t wear it as a dress.

    @ Eric

    Hey! Thanks for the comment :)

    Hmm. A tie…I don’t know how I would go about doing that to be honest. I could make the tie shape but then fastening it around your neck in typical tie fashion would be tricky.

  8. Well…Quaterback Tom Brady appeared to be selected as No. one in Excellent 100 Game enthusiasts of this season at official NFL location. I love his history greatly. Late round draft examination, little child at the combine, in the end bought a chance and staying the fantasy of NFL dominance and a super model spouse. I used to show my great pride by dressing in football jersey with a number 12 and his name. You can find a retail outlet from where i selected my excellent jerseys. Jeter’s fans can get mlb jerseys, Jordan’s follower can collect discount nba jerseys and Crosby’s supporters can order nhl jerseys wholesale there. What’s fabulous is they offer youth nfl jerseys and women jerseys. I sent 2 pieces as gifts to my nephew. He likes it very much. I bought my sports team a dozen of cheap nfl jerseys at around 20 dollars, quality is a lot better than expectation, big surprise. Also i would like to have my own name and number embroidered on NFL uniforms, I hope they can custom made jerseys before long.
