TU/e Industrial Design (TU/e) 2001 multidisciplinary staff, interaction design, industrial design, university, school, technology
The Industrial Design course started in 2001 and counts a number of nationalities among its multidisciplinary staff. The emphasis is on ëambient intelligenceí: the design of intelligent products, systems, and services. Over the next couple of years 'ambient care' will receive special attention because health and well-being are among the primary focal areas of both Industrial Design and the TU/e. Because of its broad range of contacts with companies and institutions in Europe and beyond (Singapore, Australia, the United States), Industrial Design is well-equiped to respond to international developments in a pro-active manner.

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.
