To create awareness and understanding of the warming-up exercise, we developed sportswear to give an organic data visualization when the body has warmed up and is prepared for the exercise. EPIC stands for Expression, Performance, Identity and Control and is meant for the amateur athlete who wishes to be able to express and control their performance. The skin temperature will be measured and visualized by the color changing interface, the difference appears through a gradient variety of the color. Through uploading a thermogram, the sportswear becomes even more personalized, as an algorithm has been created to personalize the pattern; by concentrating the pattern at the thermal peaks.
