Each quilt is created with special attention to detail making them works of art and often one of a kind. The quilts are made of cotton fabric and quilted with silk threads. Silk and velvet fabrics are used to create special occasion garments such as a wedding dress, jacket or vest, or sewn into wall hangings for special effects.
The Fos Kickstarter project wants to brighten up the athletic fashion world with flexible LED panels that can display workout achievements. It can be hard to stand out in a crowd, but a bright, animated wearable LED panel should help you get noticed. The Fos on Kickstarter is a fabric panel with Velcro strips.
A wearable furnace sounds like something I need to wear during the winter. I have poor circulation in my legs, so I am usually a little colder than everyone else. It is so cool to see technology change and become better and better.
Sewing  is the craft of fastening or attaching objects using stitches made with a needle and thread. Sewing is one of the oldest of the textile artsarising in the Paleolithic era. Before the invention of spinning yarn or weaving fabricarchaeologists believe Stone Age people across Europe and Asia sewed fur and skin clothing using boneantler or ivory needles and "thread" made of various animal body parts including sinewcatgutand veins. For thousands of years, all sewing was done by hand.
Over the past decade, a major trend in electronics has been the development of sensors, displays and smart devices which are seamlessly integrated onto the human body. Most of these wearable devices are singularly connected to a user's smart phone and transmit all data via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi signals. But as consumers wear increasing numbers of wearable devices, and as the data they transmit increases in sophistication, more innovative connection methods are being sought after.
The blanket was originally made for a small workshop, and it was connected to Teensy […]. Swatches that showcase some of the things you can do with the Lulu Daisy — a design solution to connecting e-textiles, LEDs and optic-fibers. A dataglove made from piezoresistive fabric with safetey pin connectors that can be pinned to different parts of the glove to capture stretch in different areas.
The technology revolution in the miniaturization of electronic devices is enabling to design more reliable and adaptable wearables, contributing for a world-wide change in the health monitoring approach. In this paper we review important aspects in the WHDs area, listing the state-of-the-art of wearable vital signs sensing technologies plus their system architectures and specifications. A focus on vital signs acquired by WHDs is made: first a discussion about the most important vital signs for health assessment using WHDs is presented and then for each vital sign a description is made concerning its origin and effect on heath, monitoring needs, acquisition methods and WHDs and recent scientific developments on the area electrocardiogram, heart rate, blood pressure, respiration rate, blood oxygen saturation, blood glucose, skin perspiration, capnography, body temperature, motion evaluation, cardiac implantable devices and ambient parameters.
A new way for wearable devices to connect incorporates conductive textiles into clothing to dynamically connect several devices at once. Over the past decade, a major trend in electronics has been the development of sensors, displays, and smart devices which are seamlessly integrated onto the human body. As consumers wear increasing numbers of wearable devices, and as the data they transmit increases in sophistication, however, researchers are seeking more innovative connection methods.
We were so inspired by Saint Kentigern College student Ada Chan and her award winning Wearable Arts design that we thought we would share some pointers on how she made the beautiful creation. We hope it inspires you to give it a go and make your own piece of wearable art. Cardboard tubes from toilet paper or paper towel rolls. Ada collected more than tubes for her design, but for a much more simple design you can of course, use less.
