Workshop on “Physical and Wearable Computing”: projects and outcomes
September 25th, 2012
Last July 23-27 2012, the workshop on “Physical and Wearable Computing”, organized by SUPSI
within the summer school in “Digital Fabrication and Interaction Design”
, has took place involving about 20 participants. This workshop has proved to be a very good approach to introduce future makers to the concepts of digital fabrication, prototyping and design of interactive objects.
On the workshop’s homepage
, several prototypes and artifacts manufactured during the workshop are presented. Among them, it’s worth to mention Poetry Zoo
, a set of laser-cut and RFID-equipped animals that generate poetries, The Sound of a Line
, where simple melodies can be performed by using a ball with conductive ink in combination with a special glove, and Superfluo Shoes
, a pair of shoes that react based on movement.
The complete list of projects developed during the workshop can be found on its official home page
, while a personal view of this experience by Zoe Romano, who has taught at the summer school together with Massimo Banzi, can be found here
