Machina makes music with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They are on the leading edge of an evolution where clothing merges with technology and integration becomes ubiquitous in every device we have. But that?s only the beginning. The second step will be clothing turning into exoskeletons, allowing people to do things that they couldn?t do before (lift heavier items, have better integration with computers, be able to jump higher). Then, biological components will allow us to build clothing that merges with skin, where a suit will no longer be an external part of the body (a little bit like a contact lens). Function, fashion, and form in concert.
