Making and Wearable Technology


The fusion of clothing, fashion and accessories with technology and data is a delightful playground for makers. Marrying traditional crafts with electronics, micro-controllers, Internet of Things, personal data logging etc. the scope for maker exploration is vast. We also love the way Wearable Tech is by nature so intimate and meaningful to its users and believe this still nascent domain will become part of our everyday lives so it's important right minded creative folk help set the agenda now.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are delighted to have one of Wearable Tech's most prolific and prominent practitioners Rain Ashford giving an intro to wearable tech, sci-fi, cyborgs, etc. and then talking through a few examples of her work. See her blog at http://rainycatz.wordpress.com and follow @rainycat for more on Rain and her wonderful work.

 

Next up will be Camille from 'Hacking the Body' a project about biosensors, wearables and performance. This research explores using the concept of hacking data to re-purpose and re-imagine biofeedback from the body. It investigates understandings of states of the body and hacking them to make new artworks such as performance, installation and visual artefacts. @Hacking_Body

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally we have Alex Glowaski (aka Merlin) who is a curious person who works at Sauce Labs. She inhabits hackerspaces (from AHA toNoisebridge) and makerspaces (currently TechShop, with my comrades at ProtoTank). Alex's creative hacks shake up the worlds of wearables, music and cycling amongst others. Alex is going to talk about exciting projects around NFC find out more about Alex's work on her blog and twitter @glowascii.

 

 

Please also bring along any examples of your work (wearable or not) to share and discuss with others.

    Sorry I couldn't do the pub side of things as I have to get a night project running. I did enjoy the session with very cold orange drink! Many thanks to the organiser and the presenters of this informed event. Kudos!!!

    One of the good thing in 2013 is the meetup.com. This is the facebook plus linkedin combined for like minds. I hope the session will strengthen up collaboration most especially on wearable and nano technology.

    Good to see you all!

    God blesses!!!

    Best regards,
