Humanising Technology: Jasna Rok’s Lab Presents (RE)Connect (FashNerd)

In a world where we are more disconnected from each other, Jasna Rok Labs has developed (RE)Connect ​a unique emotional intelligent fashion technology piece that will help us not lose the sensation of the people around us.

In theory, technology should connect us more to each other, but in reality, it has been separating us. Herein lies a paradox that Jasna Rok might have solved with​ a unique emotional intelligent fashion technology piece that could help us not lose the sensation of the people around us.

Jasna Rokegem​ is the founder of Jasna Rok, a speculative design lab that works at the intersection of fashion, technology and science. Applying technology and science to fashion, she has been exploring new dimensions of human interactions and building prototypes that could help us understand ourselves and others better.

An Artist in Residence at Nokia Bell Labs, Jasna has been working on an exciting project that is focused on emotion tech, a new field that is creating new business models and applications built on human emotion. Jasna, who launched the first Fashion Tech design lab in Belgium, believes that instead of sending emojis, pictures or words, we should (Re)connect with new modes of empathic communication. What Rok means is that it is better to use an interface that offers a real-time emotional haptic layer with the ability to enhance a person and their emotional understanding of him or herself and his or her peers.

(RE)Connect, A New Way For Human’s To Communicate

(RE)Connect is a first of its kind. The emotion identifier is augmenting humans emotionally by creating new levels of empathic communication. The emotional reactive fashion piece can identify and track emotions by speech and then give real-time visual and haptic feedback to the wearer and the wearer’s environment. Jasna, who is fascinated by space and the idea of having one unique garment which becomes a living organism on its own, believes that the emotion identifier will enable humans to create more tangible connections. It will also teach them how to apply this newly gained knowledge on themselves and others.

When it comes to building deeper emotional connections between people, Jasna is humanising technology through deep engineering / scientific engagement with the arts. By doing so, she has been able to come up with the sentient garment which acts as a smart fashionable augmented skin. It is capable of enveloping its wearer with an intimate and expanded perception of himself/herself (health, emotions, thoughts), people, things, the world, and other communicating garments. All the physical senses, such as haptic and tactile interfaces are explored to create novel modes of communication.
