To conclude the HDSA2019 Hackers & Designers proposes a two day workshop to push further our understanding of technologies in relation to our bodies. Erik Overmeire will introduce us to the making of wearable tech using sensors, arduinos and leds. Building on the data collection and the sensors experimentations done in prior workshops we will develop futuristic wearables that can visualise our invironment (our inner selves) in relation to our environment. Erik Overmeire has been working on developing this kind of technology for several art projects such as The Human Sensor and Coral Love Stories for the artist Kasia Molga or Wearable Facade for Popkalab.

  • Bring your computers
  • A piece of fabric, an old t-shirt, a hat… whatever you would want to convert into your next wearable tech accessory. (we will also provide fabrics and prototyping material)
  • (if you have) bring a portable USB battery
