Tools: Particle.io, Arduino, C++, Sewing

Abstract

Exploration into wearable technology can bring about emergent interactions between body, device, and culture. However, to explore these interactions, electronic parts to be located anywhere in the body. TortillaBoard is a prototyping tool enables designers to add interactive widgets to a flexible wearable sleeve. The sleeve allows physical widgets to be attached, remote controlled, and be relocated throughout the sleeve. Thus allowing designers to quickly alter the behavior of the garments and explore different interactive experiences.
