Dutch Hi-Tech Fashion Designer Anouk Wipprecht combines fashion and technology in curious and exceptional ways, e.g. by creates moving and adaptive couture by means of sensorics and robotics. For the SPARKS residency at the Ars Electonica Futurelab in 2016, she created Agent Unicorn, a head-worn device targeted for children suffering ADHD or autism. The incorporated Brain-Computer-Interface tracks brain activity in realtime and triggers recordings via an embedded RGBD camera, which are taken for self- and professional behavior analysis.
