This video demonstrates the world’s first robotically-sewn garment.
Many people are surprised to learn that this is the very first time that a robot has been used to sew a piece of clothing. The big hurdle has been that robots can’t reliably handle fabrics. Sewbo figured out how to temporarily stiffen materials, making it easy for industrial robots to assemble clothes.
This is an interactive project of musical fun facts.
In order to be different of all the common posters we know, we used a material called BARE conductive(electric paint) a creative, efficient and original tool to give a special twist on graphics interactive projects.
It was exposed on my school LCI Monterrey part of Lasalle College International.
Im very happy with the result.
Also thank you to my coworker Daniel for helping me with the programming stuff :)

Presenting the Solar Shirt designed by Pauline van Dongen
Made in collaboration with Holst Centre
The Solar Shirt is the latest design in our Wearable Solar collection and has been developed in collaboration with Holst Centre. The shirt seamlessly incorporates 120 thin film solar cells that are combined into modules using Holst Centre’s stretchable printed electronics, thus allowing the wearer to generate energy and charge devices on the go. These modules are laminated onto the fabric using a heat press technique, thereby fully merging the solar cells with the textile. Working with printed electronics gave the freedom to more playfully place the cells on the shirt. The solar cells are used as a graphic pattern, making the technology an aesthetic and distinct feature of the design.
The video shows the Solar Shirt in its daily use, while being worn by our friends. As they all wear it in their own way, they portray our vision of wearable technology as something that soon will become normative and will offer us new experiences.
