Wearable Electroactive Fabrics Integrated in Garments

Project description

The future of fashion is haptic

What if your favourite shirt could also create tactile stimulations? The EU funded WEAFING project will advance the technology behind electroactive fabrics to design lightweight and flexible textile actuators. Specifically, it will develop innovative garments with integrated textile actuators, sensors and electronics for haptic stimulation. The garments developed will have a high level of wearability as the actuator is the garment itself and the technology is silent and lightweight. The project foresees a wide range of possible applications in haptics – from ergonomics to gaming and social communication. Electromechanically active polymers form a basis for the textile muscles. The project will carry out a co-design approach involving end users.
