Code-Kroll / photo fabric
I’d been meaning to link to Sara Code-Kroll’s North Dakota project for too long. The Women on TV series hits the right spot too, but it’s more visceral of a reaction.
In the news: the BBC reports on photo sensors woven into fabric polymers:
Clothes could one day take snaps of everything happening around whoever is wearing them.
US researchers have made smart fabric that can detect the wavelength and direction of light falling on it. The research team has found a way to accurately place sensors in each fibre and co-ordinate the electrical signals they send when light falls on them. The results were a step towards “ambient light imaging fabrics” said the researchers.
Now that’s portability.
