INTIMACY PART 01 by Daan Roosegaarde & Maartje Dijkstra:
Expo pretty smart textiles
Last couple of days been working on some fashiontech pieces for the expo ‘pretty smart textiles’ that opened last Thursday evening in Den Hague, the Netherlands (Nutshuis). And though due to some technical problems (sensory activity by an capacitive sensor driven surrounding / touch sensitive key) it was ~active on the evening of the opening after 2 nights of no sleep, and a bit extended Arduino programming + soldering the circuit 4 hours before the official opening :S Next step is reconstructing the prototype and making it more solid and sensory...
This weekend hopefully succesfully finalizing my thesis and visual essay,
about _technosensual and our future bonds with technology
