~ Sarotis

Sarotis began with the question, how could technology change the way we see and interact with the world around us? 

If 3D vision technologies turn out to be as successful as their 2D predecessors, we should expect 70% of the world’s population capable of scanning, storing and analysing their environments.

Sarotis Project explores answers to this question beyond the era of mobile phones, towards more intimate wearable technology futures, where advanced vision systems and other sensory technologies are connected directly to body through softer interfaces.
