As part of the project, the textile designers and computer science researchers developed a number of prototypes to demonstrate different modes of input and output with participants (analogue/digital; co-located, wi-fi enabled; gesture, touch, presence; light, movement).
Objects were designed at different physical sizes to make the concept of the soft IoT accessible (from handheld and wearable to domestic interior scale).
1) digital input LED output cushion with 2 output circuits
2) keychain fob with accelerometer and textile press switch input, tricolor LED output
3) 3-circuit analogue input cushion with flashing LEDs
4) vibrating surface with groups of motor actuator output; responds to presence (ultrasound movement sensor) or to incoming digital data (wi-fi)
This post lists those that Tincuta led on – another post details the rug concept led by Martha Glazzard.
