      • iPad Sprocket Pocket

        A 5-minute film that shows how-to build your very own wearable iPad Sprocket Pocket. Watch the whole film and try to find the easter egg! This was a MAYAmake 24-hour project. The Sprocket Pocket, and the MAYA Sprocket iPad application were designed, prototyped, tested, manufactured in limited quantity (9 in first 24 hours were built and 4 were given away at an Apple Store just for fun to random bike riding iPad owners), packaged, and deployed all within 24 hours before the launch of the iPad. Yes this is a silly example of having fun with an iPad. It's also an example of "precycling" where we try to picture how you could recycle products after they aren't expensive objects of desire. A $600 iPad today, will be a $300 one in a year, and a $50 dollar one a year after that, and soon you'll be finding spare iPads in the cushions of your couch or in your cereal boxes as prizes for choosing NanoCrispies as your zap, spackle, and zop choice in the future. So once that happens what do you do? We suggest wearing it. The first day we wore these around town people suggested all sorts of other ideas: - Put it on the front as a networked programmable t-shirt graphic - Wear it with a group to have coordinated networked protest graphics when you go on your next march - Give it to crossing guards - Sell advertisement on people (afterall isn't that how the world goes round?) - Broadcast coordinated imagery across a crowd of people at your next big football game to make a giant mosaic on everyone's t-shirts - Hang an iphone with the camera pointing outward from your back and an iPad in a Sprocket Pocket on your front and you've got a window right through your body where the sun shines through - Put one on the front and back of your shirt and use it as a touch, tilt, tag football game (remember by this time iPads sell for $1 and are disposable) - Wear it on your hand and play hacky-sack pinball with a group of friends - Mount it on your handlebars and have a GPS dashboard For more information, to download the patterns or just find out what the heck we're talking about, check out: http://www.maya.com/sprocket

          • Social Textiles: Social Affordances and Icebreaking Interactions Through Wearable Social Messaging

            The way we represent ourselves in social media is intangible. What we choose to wear is public to the world and we are aware of it. In contrast, what we post online about ourselves reaches thousands of people and generates social consequences, but it doesn’t feel that way. Is the current form of social media really making our relationships better? Current technologies are good at connecting people at a distance, but less so at connecting them within the same environment. Social textiles embodies who you are and dynamically reflects your shared interests with people nearby. It enables you to gain access to communities of people in the physical world and enhances social affordances and icebreaking interactions through wearable social messaging. Social Textiles can serve to connect community members with niche interests, philosophical beliefs, personalities, emotional statuses and ethical views. It has the potential to enable members to bypass superficial or generic interests through “filtering” individuals, to tune social experiences towards more compatible ones.

                Dandelion is a wearable that captures energy from wind and human movement. It is a structure of miniature windmills that embraces the wearer. It is fashion that creates an interface between nature, technology, and people. When walking or standing outside on a windy day, the windmills turn. Small individual power generating circuits transfer the rotational energy into usable voltage. In this prototype, the power generated turns on white LEDs, but the energy could be used to power mobile devices or stored for later use.

                  Aside from exotic Daisy Duck with her dance of the seven veils, and the mute abiding second class citizen in a black burka, not many images spring to mind when thinking of an Arab woman. Arabiia is a caricature of media stereotypes typically associated with arab women. The convertible outfit is equipped with two servo motors and a switch. It enables its wearer to voluntarily choose which of two extreme representations fits her mood and audience.

                      The MIT Mobile Experience Laboratory, in partnership with the Provincia di Brescia - Italy - is developing a sustainable ride-sharing system for youth that utilizes wearable media. The system, with its main components of social networking, reputation management, referrals and geopositioning makes it possible to coordinate the matching of drivers and passengers with preferences entered online in user profiles. The system can detect successful ride-shares and will reward participants accordingly, thereby providing an incentive to continue using the system. In addition to promoting social sustainability, the system also serves to prevent driving under the influence of alcohol. The system is designed as open platform and promote social connection and trust, and wish to strenght the communication among communities and with institutions. http://www.ridelink.ws http://mobile.mit.edu Team Federico Casalegno, Orkan Telhan, Guz Gutmann, Steve Pomeroy, Brian McMurray, Roberto Aimi, Sajid Sadi, David Boardman, Agnes Chang, Daniel Cardoso, Leonardo Benuzzi.
