Biography

Having studied electrical engineering and computer science at the RWTH Aachen University, I now work as the Fab Lab manager at the media computing group, concentrating my research on toolkits especially for wearables, with the goal to allow makers to easily develop and build there own.

Both talk and exhibition will focus on the textile research of the media computing group. This includes pinstripe (input by folds), a new textile multitouchpad, the successor of OpenVNavi (a haptic vision vest for the blind), the result of the fashion-hack day (presumable a wearable fog-display), and a wearable toolkit to easily integrate electronics in your clothing.
