May 11th 2015, 6 hour workshop at Parsons in Paris, France
This workshop is only open to students of Parsons Paris.
A six-hour introductory workshop to the materials, tools and techniques for building resistive sensors from textiles. Making your own sensors enables you to customize interactions to the specifics of your project. Sensors made from fabric, thread and yarn are great for applications that involve other soft and malleable materials like the human body.
In this workshop students will build their own custom soft sensors and connect these via an Arduino (or similar) to a computer in order to visualize the range of data generated by the sensor.
