DXARTS 490B: E-textiles & Wearables for Art & Design - Autumn 2017
490B is a studio class offered at DXARTS, on experimenting with electronic textiles, soft-circuits and wearable technology. It provides hands-on prototyping for physical computing projects that explore the body as an interface of control for interactive environments. The students engage with smart materials, hand-crafted electronics and creative programming with Arduino to design their own interactive wearables. E-textiles and wearable computing can be used in multimedia performance projects, interface or game design, medical monitoring systems, and also as educational tools for people of all ages.
On December 2017, the students presented their final projects:
