Event Details

Think about a coat that detects changes in air and body temperature and automatically adjusts to keep you comfortable. How about a sonar based device enabling you to see in the dark? Or always having your music player, video player, radio, and mobile phone with you wherever you go because they are built into your tshirt? eTextiles, electro-craft, wearable electronics; it's about taking technology and transforming it around your body, creating symbiosis. Whether you're looking to augment the human condition with technology or you're more interested in the romantic ethereal glow of twinkly lights, you have to start somewhere.

In this short series of workshops we will provide a quick introduction to the Arduino Lilypad line of wearable electronics. We'll look at how to tell the micro-controller (the smart component) what to do, and how to use some sensors and actuators*. And then how to put it all together into an actual, wearable, project.

Taking place one evening a week, for three weeks, we hope to introduce you to a new passion that combines electronics, programming, and crafting. Sound scary? The only pre-requisite is that you have a laptop (with USB port) you can bring to the workshops. We'll help you with all the rest.

*components that do something, e.g. a buzzer makes a sound
