Skill Enhancer – Integrated Artificial Muscles

Leave a comment

The project is in collaboration with RCA knitwear designer Katharina Dubbick. We embedded special Shape Memory Alloy into knitwear designed by Katharina to create “artificial muscles”. The end of the wire is connected to tiny electricity provider, when turned on, the “artificial muscles” bent or stretch through garments. The movements guide the arm and leg to move.  This project has won support from Adidas for further development in the summer of 2017.
