Imagine a piece of fabric that can be tapped or swiped just like you would a touch screen? Or if sensors woven into the cover of your chair told you when you were slouching? Electronic textiles are where computer science, electrical engineering, textiles and design all come together. Dr Rebecca Stewart, of Queen Mary University, London will discuss its rise and how it could change the way we interact with the world around us, including during live performance.
This talk was awarded the annual Daphne Oram Award Lecture by the British Science Association. The British Science Association’s Award Lectures on tour is supported by 3M.
