As we approach a near future where our everyday clothes will be smart and connected, enabling us to improve our performance, monitor our health and even protect us from dangers, a special attention needs to be given to soft sensors.
This hands on session uncovers the possibilities soft sensors can provide us in creating wearable interactions that are embodied, comfortable and responsive. At the end of the session, students will have created their own soft sensor and prototyped a wearable interaction scenario with Arduino.No prior exposure to coding with Arduino is necessary but a basic understanding of it and of electronic circuits is welcome.
