Tickets are still available for tonight’s Computational Fashion event at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center in NYC, all about smart textiles:
Presenting a diverse group of designers and scientists working in cutting edge textile research and production. From nanoparticles to circuit boards, technology is becoming embedded in the very fabric of the things we wear, creating clothing that’s more responsive to changing needs and conditions. Spurred in part by collaborations between academic and industry partners, “smart textiles” are beginning to enter the consumer market to enhance the properties of a garment whether it is heating, vitamin dissemination through the fabric, or weather proofing. These emerging developments are reshaping both materials and electronics for the human body. Join us as we explore possibilities within this growing area of creative and scientific innovation.
Juan Hinestroza, Associate Professor of Fiber Science and Director of Textiles Nanotechnology Lab, Cornell University
Genevieve Dion, Assistant Professor and Director of Shima Seiki Haute Technology Lab, Drexel University
Becky Stern, Director of Wearable Electronics, Adafruit Industries
Moderated by Dr. Sabine Seymour, Computational Fashion lead advisor and founder of Moondial
Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!
