In August, the project Textile Reflexes in which we will explore the possibilities of robotic textiles for coaching will start. Textile Reflexes was funded by the Horizon2020 project Wear Sustain and is a collaboration between fashion- and textile designer Hellen van Rees, computer scientist Angelika Mader (UT) and me.
Hellen explains more about the project in this video:
As part of the workshop series Things2Things, a one-year-long project of the 3TU Industrial Design programs in the Netherlands, I co- organised the workshop ‘Objects with intent’ that explored the changing role that connected objects can play in everyday life, the intentions they can develop, and how we can design for interactions with such objects.
A booklet was made that captures general findings of all workshops in the series. Specific insights from each workshop were also captured in separate booklets.
