fabricated objects


Project Jacquard

Project from Google ATAP looks into ways to turn textiles into interactive interfaces:

Project Jacquard is a new system for weaving technology into fabric, transforming everyday objects, like clothes, into interactive surfaces. Project Jacquard will allow designers and developers to build connected, touch-sensitive textiles into their own products. This is just the beginning, and we’re very excited to see what people will do with it.
