Time to catch up - the first two days the students have been getting familiar with the laboratories at the Swedish School of Textiles. They have learned about screen printing, and how to include conductive yarns in knitting, weaving, and embroidery! After brainstorming, testing, and hearing about the heating technology Inuheat has develop, on Wednesday and Thursday the students will be free to experiment and develop their prototypes. Exciting days ahead of us! Here's the design brief we have given them:
'Develop a material based on the presented techniques - you can make a selection of what you would like to use. Explore the context of application around the body and how to use smart textiles to design a wearable. Consider the whole system, including the battery.'
