Inclusive Design in Wearable Technology  – Creative Computing intensive courses

When?
15 – 19 July

Where?
UAL London College of Fashion

This workshop provided the students with the basic knowledge and skills needed to produce individual wearable technology devices employing e-textiles and embedded sensors, for the purpose of improving lives or simply to enhance aesthetics.

Students will experience first hand the process of designing, wiring and programming interactive soft circuits to create innovative solutions for applications of their choice which may include but not limited to fashion, art, music, gaming, and healthcare.

The new UAL Creative Computing (UAL CCI) Institute supports interdisciplinary teaching, research and knowledge exchange at the intersection of creativity and computational technologies.
The Institute works across domains such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, alongside exploring how the contemporary world is being defined through human computer interaction and social platforms.
