2020 INNO-vation Disruptive Challenger
A coat hanger-like device that breathes movement into clothing is currently being developed and implemented for use in society.
This technology, with its formality, endearing charm, and quick movements can be used to bring out the hidden life that clothes already hold inside to create a new type of social robot or retail store display.
Whether it’s commercial or private use, this product allows users to utilize their own creativity and uncover unique worldviews in their own everyday lives all while widening the bond between people and clothing.
