  • Wearable technology is everywhere today. Designers are creating smart and responsive apparel, accessories, and assistive devices that are being used to solve big problems while setting trends in the fashion world. In this studio, you’ll explore biofeedback in the context of fashion. You’ll learn how to use sensors, AI, and kinetics to engage people and improve their well-being by using signals from our own bodies.

    In this Studio, using innovative textiles, materials and technologies, you will learn to how to design wearable tech products that improve the lives of people. These devices will augment the capabilities of healthy individuals (e.g. improved communication) in addition to assisting those who suffer from physical or neurological disorders. Students will design, build and program biofeedback fashion from the ground up, testing their creations and and seeing how their products perform. Through this process, students will learn the basics of electronics, microcontrollers and computer programming. They will learn how to integrate external sensors (from simple switches and buttons to heat/temperature, light, gas, touch) and actuators (such as motors, lights, speakers, solenoids, valves, fans) into their designs to create responsive fashion. Students will also learn the engineering, 3D modeling, robotics, and programming skills to bring their vision to reality!
