February 2013 marked the start of Light.Touch.Matters, in which designers and material researchers join forces to develop a fully-new generation of smart materials that can sense touch and respond with luminescence.
Light.Touch.Mattersis a unique cooperation between product designers and material scientists, with 17 partners from 9 EU countries. It is funded through a grant in the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme and will run for 3,5 years until July 2016.
This film was made at the Institute of Making part of UCL in London at an event where participants got to play with materials and discuss ideas in an informal way.
