“At a time in which people are hyper-connected to the world and others around them via technologies, it is essential to also connect with their personal selves, their well-being and surroundings,” states the Ultratech website announcement. “Taking note of the present and living in the moment through sensorial experiences, Wired expresses how touch and color together speak to human interactions and emotional connections with the physical world.”
According to the company, “Wired has a unique tactile feel that appeals to the haptic sense; a gentle layering of color (in 12 different hues) provides depth of design; and parallel and perpendicular lines create a sense of technological movement.”
