Digital fabrication tools and sensors make it possible to create simple and inexpensive technological clothing able to measure and warn of different variables that the human body cannot perceive.The aim of this workshop is to show what can be done with open code tools and the possibilities offered by the incorporation of sensors into clothing, for the creation of technological garments from an artistic perspective.

Over two sessions, the participants will make their own technological clothes, incorporating into an everyday garment sensors that measure the amount of light and humidity. The data gathered can be visualized on a small LCD screen that is also incorporated.

Aimed for: creators, designers and anyone interested in wearable technology with open code tools. No previous knowledge is necessary
