Workshop

Sensitive headdress

Participants discovered what is a soft electronic circuit by hand sewing: they embroidered with conductive threads small circuits without programing. We explored how ornaments of the traditional Mongolian costumes, such as beads and bells can be turn into soft switches and act on light. Documentation →

Interactive traditional felt

The participants explored how to create sensors based on the Mongolian cultural heritage by felt making. While manipulating the felted wool included in the garments, we collected data with Arduino and used them to control programmable LEDs thanks to a micro-controller.  Documentation →
