Seattle, Washington 2016
Five years after founding MakeFashion, I’d heard a number of far-fetched ideas for wearable technology. I decided to make a twitter bot to generate concepts.
I designed the bot to use a variety of buzzwords and startup cliches to tweet daily wearables announcements – ranging from realistic to the comically bizarre.
The bot’s “upgraded” module also tweets sentences. These are generated by paragraphs of text from wearable technology news that has been fed to it. These tweets are less coherent, but much more interesting (and sometimes uncanny).
