Social networking can be a good thing and a bad thing. For some celebrities social networks like Twitter and Facebook are ways to communicate with fans. However, the networks are also a way for fans to ensure that the celebrities don’t get any peace.
There is another group of celebrities and want to be celebrities that want everyone to know where they are. For this type of person designer Jennifer Darmour has developed a concept garment called Ping that automatically updates groups on Facebook with your location.
The garments would update the social networks when actions are done like putting the hood of the shirt up or down. The clothing uses Lilypad and Lilypad Xbee with custom software to interface with Facebook.
