Culture and science coming together!? E-Textile Meet-Up - News. By Emcee Grady | December 10, 2010 | 10 comments Share Use this URL to share: Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Share on Google+ Today we have a guest post from our friend Lynne Bruning, E-Textile master: Last week I embarked on a hasty trip to Portland to see Rose City Vaudeville, visit a very pregnant girlfriend and size-up the Stump Town geek factor.

Within a couple of hours I found cheap airfare, called my friend and blindly emailed the Portland Dorkbot, home of the Teensy++. Continuum Fashion : N12. The future of fashion, and the future of consumer products in general, lies not only in more advanced technologies and materials, but also in reevaluating the very infrastructure of design, manufacture, and retail.

By blending rapid fabrication, interactive software, and the accessibility of the web, we can let individuals participate directly in the design and production process. In short, the "D" collection is actually a piece of software. The D.dress app lets you draw a dress, turns it into a 3D model, and exports a cutting pattern to make the real dress, sized to your measurements. A laser cutter or plotter cuts the pattern out of fabric, which is then sewn into the dress. All the designs are unified around the theme of the little black dress, and the triangulation used in the software. 3D3 Solutions Announces Kinect 3D Scanner, KScan3D, at Siggraph 2012. Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2012 3D3 Solutions, a cutting edge developer of 3D scanning and visualization technologies, announces the release of KScan3D at Siggraph 2012 today.

Psychogeography in fashion At Tent London this year, The Design Museum presented a retrospective exhibition of Kingston University’s world renowned alumni alongside a selection of work from 150 current arts based MA graduates.

Psychogeography in fashion

The influence of psychogeography as a theme was evident in the work of many of the designers – especially in the area of fashion, as shown here: DIY Fiber Optic Fabric using RGB LEDs. By weaving fiber optic strands as if they were yarn, this team of DIYers created a fiber optic “fabric” of sorts which features a few dozen RGB LEDs and reacts to the outside world via Twitter.

Currently, they’re raising funds to launch a company to produce the textiles, but we’re posting it here so you can be inspired to build your own. After the strands are weaved together, groups of the strands are grouped together and aimed down the head of an LED. Each LED is controlled via software which also connects to the web. 3D cloth simulation Model and style creation. WOVEN FIBER. Fiber Optic Dressing Monitors Wound Healing. 2inShare A team of Swiss researchers from the Technology in Textiles (TechinTex) project are working on a new type of wound dressing which can monitor the state of a wound using fiber optic threads woven into the dressing. The fibers are designed to change color in response to changes in the acidity of the wound, which is an indicator of its healing status. It is hoped that this new approach may replace the need for swabs and laboratory testing. Currently the dressing is capable of detecting acidity changes in human blood serum, but may include enzyme monitoring in the future.


EMPRESAS SECTOR TEXTIL. FASHION DESIGN. EL Wire. EL Wire, also known as Electroluminescent wire, is a stiff wire core coated with phosphor and then covered with a protective PVC sheath. When an AC signal is applied to it, it glows an aqua (blue green) color. Sometimes its covered with a colored plastic shell to make it appear another color. HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT. Using the circular knitting machine to knit a circular tube with the Schoeller 50/2 conductive yarn, makes for an excellent stretch sensor that can be used (among other things) to capture the pressure of a balloon inflating and deflating. Closeup of knit yarn, where the red yarn is regular yarn and the gray wide center stripe is conductive.

You can also knit the conductive yarn alongside a regular yarn, this increases resistance. Below are pictures of an example where the thin gray conductive yarn is knit along side regluar white yarn using the circular knitting machine. Flyer Pretty Smart Textiles.

Investigadores de dos centros tecnológicos, uno de Terrasa y el otro de Talavera de la Reina, han desarrollado prendas textiles capaces de generar electricidad aprovechando la diferencia de temperatura entre el cuerpo humano y el medio ambiente, lo que servirá para cargar móviles y cámaras.El cuerpo humano tiene, en el caso de un sujeto con una salud correcta, una temperatura interna estable de 37 grados, lo que se traduce en una temperatura superficial del orden de 32 y 34 grados, dependiendo de la zona de piel estudiada, algo que puede aprovecharse para generar electricidad usando un material termoeléctrico adaptado,edioambiente (puede estar entre -88 grados y +58 grados) según estas fuentes.

Las fibras de los textiles son la solución más adecuada para la integración de estos dispositivos, que deberán obtener una corriente y tensión válidas para el almacenamiento en una batería de la electricidad o para la alimentación de dispositivos electrónicos portátiles. 3D Online.
