Soft Switches & Gentle Touch Workshop

2022-11-25 @ 14:00 - 16:00

Members: lee wilkins
Clusters: Milieux

Please join us for the second workshop in the Milieux’s Soft SLow Tech series! November 25th at MilieuxMake we will be exploring ‘Soft Switches & Gentle Touch’!

This workshop will go over the basics of soft switches and e-textiles. We will learn how to create switches that live in collaboration with the body using conductive fabric and touch-sensitive materials. We’ll learn about using switches to create basic logic and building complex interactions using soft circuits.

Soft SLow tech is a series about creating electronics that are made out of soft, squishy, pliable, bendable, or otherwise unconventional materials. With bi-weekly meet-ups, alternating between workshops and group work sessions, we will explore soft circuits, e-textiles, soft robots and slow / low tech solutions. For those interested in getting more deeply involved, the ultimate goal will be to collaborate on a project, to be determined by the group! All participants are invited to take part in both learning through an ongoing workshop series, and working together on a larger project in bi-weekly sessions, or exploring individual projects as well!

RSVP required!
* We ask that you register by emailing lee at l.wilkins@concordia.ca with ‘soft switches’ included in the subject line.
** This workshop is open to members of all Milieux research groups and requires no pre-requisites.

As this is an ongoing series, even if you cannot make this workshop, feel free to contact us to register your interest for future events in the Soft SLow Tech series, so that we can schedule and plan accordingly!
