Erich Berger Erich Berger interface, mathematical, structures
Erich Berger is a master of the obscure interface. With an engineering degree in communications and a Master degree in philosophy, it should perhaps not come as a surprise that Berger is interested in paradox. His fascination for mathematical structures is obvious in his visual language, consisting of the formal patterns of squares, lines and rectangles. No attempt is made to create an organic quality, the shapes are pure abstraction.

Flare Dress Stijn Ossevoort electronic engineering, user interface research, product design, material research, technical project management, production management, microprocessor programming, graphic design, 3D visualization
This little LED number called Flare is the sustainable party girl’s answer to looking beautiful and technically tailored. Imagine showing up at the company holiday party aglow in the Stijn Ossevoort creation! In spite of all the buzz from the gadget geeks proclaiming the wonders of wearing something as fashion-forward as Flare, one question keeps flashing like a red light: What if it gets wet? No worries. The Flare dress runs on wind energy which means if worn correctly (read: walk really fast) the dandelions will light up from your personally generated breezes.

-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.

The T-Shirt Issue Linda Kostowski, Mashallah Design 2008 lasercutter, wearable, geometric garment, personal expression, formal-poetic garment, unconventional t-shirt
Three people are portrayed digitally by scanning their bodies. The output of this scan is a 3d file, which resolution is defined by the amount of polygons, similiar to pixels in a bitmap grafic. Linked with their biographical memories a digital twin of the body is thus created, which expands and personifies the garment in a formal-poetic way. The 3d data is turned into 2d sewing patterns by the use of the unfolding function which is a common tool in industrial design process to make paper models with, the single fabric pieces and the inner interface which defines the edges are cut out by the help of a lasercutter.
Voiceprints Pierre Proske interactive, audio, visual installation, print, textile, pattern
VOICEPRINTS is an interactive audio visual installation. A person speaks into a microphone, their voice is analysed for frequency content, and then a number of small similar textile patterns are re-arranged in an abstract representation of the personís vocal frequency print. These patterns are either projected onto a surface or displayed on a large screen and eventually turn translucent and then fade away. The person's voice becomes a playful and intuitive interface to the visual display.
XYinteraction-Textile Interface Maurin Donneaud, Vincent Roudaut flexibility, texture, size, choreographic movements, playing electronic music, tactile interface, interactive textile, trasparency, body, musical interpretation
The XY interactive textile is a large tactile interface for playing electronic music. The performer plays it simply by the movement of his/her hand on it's surface. This textile interface allows users to compose and interpret electronic music by choreographic movements. By its size, its texture, its flexibility and its transparency, this textile interface involves the whole body in the musical interpretation.
Zizi the affectionate couch (Twenty121) couch, support, physical, emotional, response, experiment, human computer interface
Zizi is a couch that supports you not only physically but also emotionally. She is a mixture of a shaved poodle, a fluffy cat and an exotic sea slug. Zizi growls when sat upon, purrs when touched and groans with delight when you stroke her fur. If left alone, she mews for attention. Inspired by the fluffy flight deck on board Barbarella: Queen of the Galaxy's space-ship, Zizi the affectionate couch is an experiment in human computer interface, making a move away from the screen and mouse based interactives that are the dominant paradigm in media art works. Zizi's reactions are triggered by motion sensors that activate nine vibrating audio devices to simulate purring. Digital signal processing and behavioural algorithms determine her responses.
