Security for virtualized datacentres

happening, now, essential


Move over McCartney. Give it up Ghost. Saddle up Oldfield and get out of town. Yup, the days of the celebrity fashion designer are today numbered with the news that Intel is moving into hi-tech haute couture.

Chipzilla has teamed up with Helena Rosén of London's Central St Martins College of Art and Design to take the technology packed into the wafer-thin 2D form of the Pentium 4 processor and mirrored the "opening up" of a 3D computer world in her self-assembly fashion range.

Blimey. The so-called 'AnyWear*' range - featuring prints taken from the stunning architectural blueprint of the Pentium 4 processor - is heralded as an innovative street-style collection [which] will cater for today's mobile, infotainment-led generation.

What this apparently means is an Intel t-shirt from a vending machine customised to your personal taste. It's happening, it's now, and it makes sense for the way you live today. Oh yeah.

According to designer Helena, "For people on the move, I think the future is for virtually instant clothing that adapts to your lifestyle and how you use technology."

Agreed. But where will we put all of those must-have cyberaccessories? Fear not: To complement the T-shirt, versatile carriers (shoulder or back-pack) produced in recyclable materials are designed to make your digital essentials (MP3 player, camera, PDA, ID card etc.) easily accessible.

ID card? Now that they've redefined the future of clothing, is there anything else that the fashionistas would like to let us in on? ®
