Developed at the MIT Media Lab’s Mediated Matter group, Living Mushtari is a 3D printed wearable with 58 meters of internal fluid channels designed to function as a wearable microbial factory that uses synthetic microorganisms to convert sunlight into useful products for the wearer.
Last week the prolific Toronto-based tech event organizer FITC hosted a daylong summit on wearable technology. With a lineup bookended by ‘the father of wearable computing’ Steve Mann and Social Body Lab founder Kate Hartman, the invited speakers offered a range of opinions on ‘what’s next for wearables?’ for an audience of curious developers.
Generative Scarves for iOS includes a procedural algorithm commonly used to digitally generate patterns of the natural world, sampled into a bespoke application and used to create unique print for an individual scarf.
Scent Rhythm is a timekeeping device that maps relational olfactory sequences to the body’s circadian cycle.
Through generative fabrication and computational design, this project aims to reconnect digital and physical contexts through a custom designed “chronomorphologic modeling” environment.
“feelSpace” is a research project undertaken by students at the University of Osnabrück’s Institute of Cognitive Science, supervised by Prof.Dr. Peter König. The project is based on the fascinating notion that the human brain is flexible enough to ‘learn’ a new sense. The work conducted by the team at Osnabrück relies on the familiarity gained […]
