Evaluation

This is a challenge to make the complex and various functions of home electronic appliances easier to operate by utilizing the rich ability of smartphones to express information. At the same time, this product enables self-diagnosis for device failures by directly connecting to the network, which indicates how the interfaces of home electronic appliances should be in the future. The relationship between clothing material, weight, and purpose can be clearly indicated, and the integration of information design and hardware is being attempted.
