Temperskin is the next (level) performance clothing for the athletes. For those who want to reach their next level of performance avoiding the injuries.
I have created smart running tights that shows your temperature during the warming up. In addition, it shows your data in real-time and the notifies about the perfect timing; the application gives a calculated advice on how to reach better performance results safely. The Temperskin concept is based on smart sportswear where the visual designs are not connected to the smart function.
As an athlete and a speculative designer, I have noticed that there is only a limited offer of smart sportswear, where the function of the piece is not communicated in the visual design. A perfect example of an interface where the internal functions are being visually displayed on the surface is the human skin, which transforms during high effort activities. In horse-riding they prevent horse injuries by using infrared techniques, so why not try it on humans? In the form of our second skin: clothing.
