24 October 2015: Clothing and Technology – A Wearables Hackday
Get involved in a day of wearables and e-textiles, exploring how combining fabric and computers can make for interesting projects.
Want a belt that vibrates to lead you to free food? Or a suit which glows different colours based on your heart rate? How about a jacket sleeve that lights up when you’re pointing North?
You can learn how to do just that (or at least make a start on it…).

If you’re a beginner and wanting to try something new, get hands on with e-textile kits to make a simple, wearable soft circuit.
Explore how digital fabrication can be used to make wearable textile projects, from laser cut fabric and tools to automated looms such as the knitic.
Don’t know about electronics or computers? Don’t worry, there’ll be some Arduino physical computing kits to play around with, and people to help show you how. Learn how you could use Arduino and lilypads to make more advanced projects.
It’s an informal day of learning and making – there will be:
• people working on projects of their own, looking for help from fellow attendees
• people joining up with someone else on the day to share skills and make something
It’s all about learning and having fun!
