Caché Nadya Peek 2009 interaction, MIT media lab, fab-lab, sensor, dress, wearable, interactive clothing, e-textile, social, student, workshop
Nadya Peek, a first year grad student at the MIT Media Lab created a unique interactive dress to close the gap between our presents in the physical and virtual world. The scenario: a Netcitizenís photo on his/her social network platform indicates ëclickableí areas on the personís clothing. By clicking on these areas on the Website the information will be transmitted via smartphone and bluetooth to the piezo speaker in the garment indicating via a click sound someone clicked on the image letting the wearer know he/she feels close right now.

This site is dedicated to Wearable Electronics in the purest sense: Textile based, Clothing and Fashion Accessories. Thatís all. If a new product claims to be Wearable (Electronics) but does not meet this criteria, it will not be included in this site. Portable (Electronics) does not mean Wearable (Electronics). Talk2myShirt wants to be a platform to bring together the consumer and the designer of Wearable Electronic products. This site is connecting with Plug and Wear and is always updated.
VT E-Textile Lab Mark Jones, Tom Martin (Virginia Tech) employ extensive simulation, physical prototypes, e-textile, computing research issues, textile lab, textile design
We are attempting to address the computing research issues that arise in the successful realization of e-textiles. Our approach to this process is to build physical prototypes and employ extensive simulation to explore the vast design space in e-textiles. Towards that end, we are constructing a modeling and simulation environment to explore that space.
