ABOUT WE:EX
Wearable Experiments (We:eX) is a socially driven wearable technology company. Our mission is to bring together fashion and technology with a functional design aesthetic, and use creative problem solving to help us live well and have a better quality of life.

We aim for the community's feedback on our projects to ensure we are giving the people what they want and making their lives easier. We:eX believes that people are not ready to become computers, but they are growing more interested in being connected all the time - whether they're connecting with information, people or retrieving personal data. Our clothes are an untapped resource that, together with technology, can help people stay more connected and use their fashion in a more practical way.
