If you’re around LA, please join me at the wearables studio at Siggraph 2010. We have a wonderful wearables exhibit featuring a lot of the projects I covered on Fashioning Tech last year. So drop by and experience them in person. Plus we’ll be sitting around and making stuff all day long so there will be plenty of hands-on activity to keep you inpsired. Official info below: Wearables This area focuses on human-body-centered technologies used for creative expression, biofeedback, expanded sensory modalities, communication, and other purposes. Attendees can learn about wearable technology by exploring commercial, high-end research and do-it-yourself examples of wearables, and then make their own wearable projects with expert guidance. These projects utilize Arduino micro-controllers, a variety of sensors and actuators such as servo motors and RGB light-emitting diodes, inflatable plastic forms, and sophisticated folding structures. Projects are accessible to children and attendees with no electronics experience,but they also offer experienced technicians exciting challenges and creative opportunities.
