Ever thought of a T-shirt with wearable LED display, camera, microphone, speaker and accelerometer, all packaged into it, that can be controlled via your smartphone? Most of us haven’t. But, London-based interactive clothing company Cutecircuit has teamed up with Scotch whiskey distillers Ballantine’s to create the world’s first washable, sharable and programmable T-shirt with all the elements stated earlier – wearable LED display, wearable camera, wearable microphone, wearable speakers and wearable accelerometer.


Programmable T-shirt - tshirtOS

According to its creators, the name of this T-shirt is “tshirtOS”. The T-shirt has built-in camera, speakers, microphone and accelerometer. tshirtOS can be controlled wirelessly via an iPhone app. So, its wearers can display tweets, share music, take photos and share photos with their tshirtOS. According to PC World, the prototype is apparently able to make use of Google Translate, play music videos and songs, utilize Instagram, take photographs, and display social media messages.

The people who are involved behind tshirtOS have claimed that the in-built camera is the smallest in the world, measuring 2.5mm x 2.9mm x 2.5mm that comes from Omnivision and captures at 32 x 32 resolution. The t-shirt will have 1,024 ultrathin RGB LEDs, a USB port, a pair of headphone sockets and Bluetooth. There is an audio playback via a headphone jack too.

CuteCircuit has been experimenting with two versions of tshirtOS. One is an 8-bit processor from ATMEL, and the other a 32-bit ARM Cortex (also sourced from ATMEL).

The commercial version of tshirtOS is not available yet. At present, the t-shirt only exists as a prototype. CuteCircuit, the company behind tshirtOS, plans to conduct product tests soon. It will start producing the smart-shirts depending on how many people register their interest and share the video (above) of the product on Twitter. If you want to have this T-shirt, you can register your interest at the company’s Facebook page.
