E-textile: my first wearable

Laboratory
-
This activity is only available in italian

Aim

We are surrounded all the more by smart objects. But how do you design and implement interactive products? We will find out during the E-textile workshop: my first wearable! 

Activities

Starting with fabric, conductive and resistive material, crocodiles and a microcontroller, we will make a design that, thanks to the rules of electronics, grants us human-machine interaction. During the workshop you will make a textile pressure sensor that, with simple Lilypad programming and the right number of crocodiles*, will enable you to activate a light! 
*no crocodile will be harmed! :D

How to take part

Children under the age of 14 will only be allowed access if accompanied by a responsible adult after signing a responsibility form which is available at the ticket office.

Free tickets must be booked and this can be done online, subject to availability; they are required for both participants and chaperones.
