The emotional connection

CONNECT IN A NEW INTIMATE WAY

SKARV is an innovative wearable technology that intelligently combines
fashion and function. It’s a scarf which intertwines functional textiles and social media allowing people to connect in a new and more intimate way. It provides something often missing from pure tech design: the emotional connection.

The emotional connection

How SKARV works

INTERACTION THROUGH SENSATION OF TOUCH

We go beyond the normal means of communication and have made it possible for the physical sensation of touch to be felt over distance. SKARV is embedded with sensors and actuators which attempt to recreate the sensation of human touch. If you are thinking of a friend or loved one, you can send an embrace with a simple text message via our app in real time.

How the app works

CONNECT PHYSICALLY THROUGH FASHION

Using our App, you can send personalized physical “sensations” to the garment wearer. Here, the body and emotion are at the centre of digital interaction. Our interfaces and systems are intuitive, natural, and compatible with a person’s emotional status. Combining emotion, communication and technology has been a large part of our design process.

lets connect skarv to your brilliant ideas

The fusion of emotion, communication and technology is at the heart of our design process. SKARV is not meant to replace human contact, but to enhance it when you are away from loved ones. Ultimately, we are all responding to change and investing in the future for improved quality of life. Have an inspiring idea? We would love to connect SKARV to your App!
