Sewable circuits: wearable technology at your fingertips

Fashion, technology or trendy craze? 'Wearable' has been a buzzword these past few years. Are we surrendering to technology wearing micro-chips galore? Are we becoming cyborgs?

Illustrated by examples, this talk will explore the innovative aspect and the limits of e-textiles, whilst discussing the technologies available for DIY.
