Aeolia (Nottingham Trent University ) body, protoype, three-dimensional, weaving
This project explores the nature of space and place and will examine the concept of a bodily connection with the land through sketch prototyping of stretch sensors in sculptural textile forms. The resulting series of woven pieces for the body will be remotely connected to three-dimensional forms in the Scottish landscape, combining information from each to create unique low frequency feedback to be experienced by the wearer. this project is a collaboration between many people from different disciplines, most of them working at Nottingham Trent University.
Air Guitar (CSIRO) motion, sensor, textile, audio
The air guitar works by recognising and interpreting arm movements and relaying this wirelessly to a computer for audio generation. There are no trailing cables to get in way or trip over. Textile motion sensors embedded in the shirt sleeves detect motion when the arm bends - in most cases the left arm chooses a note and the right arm plays it.

bYOB Gauri Nanda, Adrian Cable 2004 communication, accessories
What is a conversation like between a handbag and a scarf? How can you mediate their conversation and when is your skirt allowed in on the discussion? As a woman is about to leave her house, her handbag may solicit the weather forecast from the humidity sensor on its fellow smart curtain. It might deliver the news of an impending downpour by saying "I think it might rain. Go get your umbrella." And after deliberating with her coat pocket, the handbag may use ambient light to caution the user if she's forgotten her cell phone.

Cati Vaucelle Cati Vaucelle (MIT Media Laboratory) avatar, biological, science, healthcare, hybrid
Through an interdisciplinary lens that brings together engineering, art, cognitive science, and healthcare, I explore the anthropomorphic nature of hybrid physical/digital objects and their promise to be catalysts towards unforeseen discoveries. I design objects to offer anima and perspective: from the haptic jacket that an autistic patient wears to express to the doctor what it means to be sensory defensive, to the electromagnetic field detector bracelet that transforms invisible information into visible data for a feeling of empowerment, or an environment where instead of you taking care of your avatar in massive online games, your avatar turns around and takes care of your biological needs.

Modern protective clothing needs to meet a variety of multifunctional requirements and offer a very high level of protection as well as remarkable comfort and wearability, influencing the wearerís physical performance which puts it far beyond usual definitions of comfort. The demand for multifunctional properties makes it necessary to develop and improve fibre and textile materials and structures (suits, uniforms, Ö). Introduction of nanotechnology and the use of a variety of (wearable) sensors / embedded electronics and processors turn traditional protection into a value added market posing ever increasing challenges to researchers and engineers at universities, institutes and industry. Design and manufacturing of sophisticated interactive protective textiles and clothing, meeting very tight specifications, has to be done taking into account cost-effectiveness, environmental issues and even the need to be applied to military as well as civil purposes.

see yourself sensing Madeline Schwartzman book, art, senses, perception
Black Dog Publishing. Exploring this concept through the last 50 years of contemporary art and design, See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception examines the work of key practitioners in this field, from Rebecca Horn’s object based installations, Stelarc’s robotic body extensions to Carsten Höllers’ physically interactive sculptures. The works and artists illustrated throws into consideration how we see and sense the world around us through artistic interpretation. Whether extending these senses through projections, technological spectacles or even telepathy, our perceptual limitations are challenged and our senses realized visually. Analyzing the importance and influence of body-scaled sensory experiments, Schwartzman reveals the fascinating relationship between senses, body, art and perception.
