-Amanda Parkes' Piezing generates power using the natural gestures of the human body in motion. Around the joints of the elbows and hips of the garment is piezoelectric material that generates electricity in response to applied mechanical stress. The electricity is then stored as voltage in a centralized small battery and later can be discharged for use. - Muk Lux Flux boots change shape depending on the speed and motion of the wearer.
Power Plastic (Konarka) electricity, light, photovoltaic, plastic, solar panel
Konarka Power Plastic is a photovoltaic material that captures both indoor and outdoor light and converts it into direct current (DC) electrical energy. This energy can be used immediately, stored for later use, or converted to other forms. Power Plastic can be applied to a limitless number of potential applications ñ from microelectronics to portable power, remote power and building-integrated applications.

Iíve specialised myself in this field for the last two years by moving to Sweden to learn about circuits/engineering/wearable electronics/smart textiles and interaction design, participating in MEDIAMATIC Amsterdam, study interaction design, attending several courses, and doing side project with electronics.
SFIT (CSEM, CORDIS, IST ) projects cluster, collaborations, MyHeart, BIOTEX, PROETEX, STELLA, OFSETH, CONTEXT, MERMOTH, smart fabrics, interactive textile, flexible wearable systems, smart textile, smart clothes, sensor, piezo-resistive yarns, optic fibers, colored multi layers, Research and Development, Intelligent Biomedical Clothing, Biomedical Clothing, European Commission, Wearable Healthcare System
The symbiosis of textiles with wearable computing, augmented reality, human machine interfaces, media and interface design and the collaboration between established electronics and textile industries currently lead to a totally new class of flexible, conformable informative and interactive wearable systems. The current market size for wearable computing and smart fabrics and interactive textiles (SFIT) is modest but presents a strong future outlook.

Solarmer Energy Inc. is a developer of transparent, flexible plastic solar panels, the next wave in generating renewable energy from the sun. These solar panels are opening the door for a wide range of new application areas in renewable energy, which are not currently addressable with conventional silicon solar panel technology.
Talk2myShirt Eric Zainzinger (E-textile) 2006 garment, fibers, LED, textile, interactive clothing, DIY, blog, electronic, wearable, fashion, research, news
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.

As a close-to-market research organisation, the TITV Greiz is your partner for research, development, service, consulting, testing and professional training along the textile value chain. More than 50 employees develop high-tech solutions with the classic textile technology as the basis for new materials. The successful interdisciplinary cooperation with non-textile branches becomes more and more important for our institute. Especially the combination of electronics and textiles creates innovative textile products for completely new applications.
TUT (TUT Department of Electronics) material technology, electronics, interdisciplinary, wearable technology, research, technology, university, textile technology, school
The Tampere University of Technology (TUT) Department of Electronics has conducted research in wearable technology since 1997. The TUT Kankaanp‰‰ Unit, established in 2003, is a research unit specialized in wearable technology. It is a part of a wearable technology competence center located in Kankaanp‰‰, Finland. The Kankaanp‰‰ Unitís personnel are very interdisciplinary and include researchers from electronics, material technology and textile technology background. This enables us to conduct extensive research on different aspects of wearable technology and quickly adapt information and new results from various disciplines.

The interdisciplinary Wearable Computing Group which is headed by Prof. Gerhard Trˆster consists of 2 PostDocs, 15 PhD students and 2 technicians. Our core expertise lies in miniaturized digital electronics, high density packaging and smart textile, as well as signal processing. We capitalize on this expertise in designing wearable computers capable of smart assistance.
Wearable Technology- Powered Art and Fashion Design 2009 (Netherlands Media Art Institute) 2009 sensors, textiles, social life, fashion design, technologicallt clothing, netherlands media art institute, university, courses, expressive, performative garments, everyday experience
"Wearable Technology & Powered Art and Fashion Design" presents latest developments in the area of technologically augmented clothing. The program crosses the disciplines of fashion design, performance art, wearable computing and interaction design. The selected pieces envision a future in which our second skin, our clothes, become relevant element in our social life, in our communication and interaction with others. This is achieved by embedding electronics seamlessly into the textiles. After the miniaturisation of processors, sensors and batteries designers can now use these to create expressive and performative garments beyond the everyday experience.
Wiring Hernando Barrag·n (Wiring) programming, prototyping
Wiring is both a programming environment and an electronics prototyping input/output board for exploring the electronic arts and tangible media. It can also be used to teach and learn computer programming and prototyping with electronics. It illustrates the concept of programming with electronics and the physical realm of hardware control which are necessary to explore physical interaction design and tangible media aspects in the design and arts disciplines. The Wiring software and the hardware designs of the Wiring electronic input/output board are freely available for download on the Web. Users have access to the Wiring electronic input/output board as well.
Ztretch music controller Joe Paradiso, Dave Merrill (MIT Media Lab) 2006 MIT, electronic textiles, audio
There has been much prior research on integrating electronics into textiles. However, I felt that many of these projects did not take into account the usability and interactivity of the fabric. Much of the prior work is focused on rigid, exact places for touching the fabric, rather than supporting the many actions our hands and bodies can create. Thus, I wanted to make a device that could capture the richness of active touch interactions. These haptic interactions could be used to create expressive music.
