a smart-scarf design, recognizable by the unique structure enables the user to communicate anonymously with other scarf wearers via secret voice messages. The wearer may contact other users through the (personalized) mobile application, accessible only through the scarf. The driving concept a(I) explores is the ability to make connections through design (in an abnormal manner) during the cold, somewhat disconnecting-winter blue. The scarf utilizes an Arduino platform and lillypad programming system, a speaker headset, audio recording and volume adjustments. The app enables the sending, listening and receiving of recordings.
