developed and designed by Adam B. Kiss
An updated version of the BUG1 was developed in 2009. At the time it wasn’t too clear which direction the market of digital wearables would take so to test the avantguard idea of BUG I situated the sensory circuits closer to fashion. In collaboration with a Hungarian fashion designer I reconfigured the BUG as a ‘smart fashion’ accessory that could be pinned onto clothing. The BUG2 received a new textile body that was made by hand using origami techniques and a new packaging to get ready to approach the market. The digital circuit boards inside were manufactured in a 1000 piece quantity reengineered and ordered from an Asian manufacturer.
