We will investigate in different fabrics and patterns that can create special properties on our textiles. No previous experience is needed Keywords: 3d printing, 3d modeling, 3d printed fashion, fabtextiles.
Fab Textiles Project. Open Sourcing Fashion Production for a Global Innovation Ecosystem.
Hyper connectivity through digital platforms is becoming symbiotic with the physical realm, creating synergies between bits and atoms in places like Fab Labs and Makerspaces all over the planet.
Digital fabrication laboratories are becoming incubators for innovative technologies and creators of spin off and disruptive initiatives that are being implemented in the “real” world. In Barcelona we have continuously contributing to the change of mindset on how we understand the gaps of our broken economy, and how to open the exclusiveness of means of production and networks through practical examples like: Smart Citizen, Fab Textiles, Open Source Beehives, Fab Store as well as implementations in global scale, such as the Fab City project, Fab 10 Conference, or FabLabs.io. The possibilities to conduct experimental research in a open laboratory gives the physical and mental space for innovative re-thinking, and offer the resources for visions to be materialised, tested, developed and make an active impact in people’s life, no as a linear process, but as a spiral iteration and implementation in the reality.
Fab Textiles offers a cross-disciplinary education and research platform, where production and culture through advanced technologies are making impact in the way we think and act towards the fashion industry. We work locally, while creating connected communities globally. We are not waiting for things to change, we are changing them from the ground up.

Design Challenges - how to analyse information, how to form insights, how to divide them into categories to form design challenges. [brains on]
The design process should have a structure to be efficient and enable managing change. Creating a design challenge is a cruicial part of developing any project - after studies and research, after gathering insights comes the time to synthesize all the information and look for new ways to answer peoples' needs. A well defined challenge should be an effect of thorough work and not just intuition or pre-concieved ideas about solutions. It should describe the people involved and the final state we want to reach. If the challenge is defined correctly, it opens up new pathways to create new products - even those that are not so apparent at the first glance.

Android App Architecture for the Everyday Developer
MVC, MVP, MVVM, Clean and more keywords might sound familiar to you, these describes patterns that helps developers building high quality software by organizing things up. But why bother? why not stick to the classic 'don't fix what ain't broken'? A well planified architected app can speed up the development process and simplify the long term maintainability. It's not enough to keep functions smalls and not building a god-Activity, we need to level-up and design towards clean architecture. This talk will review and discuss MVP and Clean approaches, how to start, and tips on architecting our apps in a compelling way.

Context Engineering Reality as a Medium
This session will investigate hybrid transformative technologies and techniques that combine the affordances of the analogue with the digital to enable a new era of Hyper Function, Sensory Augmentation and Perceptual Adaptation. As a result of these contextual interventions and augmentations the lenses through which we experience the world are becoming more adjustable than ever.
The newly funded Horizon 2020 project '[WEKIT] Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training’ http://wekit.eu/ will use the latest in wearable and motion tracking technology to create ‘wearable experience’, an entirely new form of media.
Context Engineering will give us new abilities, control over our senses and the ability to develop new forms of perception, providing us with a new type of self-exploration. In this session we will discuss hybrid transformative technologies to enhance our perception and help us see, hear, and feel our environments in new and enriched ways. The following questions will be explored:
-How adaptable is our perception?
-What is the impact of mnemonics and spatial literacy on memory and cognition.
-What are the biological risks of Context Engineering?
-How can hybrid technological devices, of often- prosthetic alienation, help us to reconnect to ourselves and to the surrounding environment?
-How important is immersion for overcoming and subverting the human condition?
-To what extent can content create context?
-How can we find an appropriate balance in this hybrid environment that pushes but respects the human condition?

The Living Interface: Mutative Design
Mutative design is a theoretical design methodology that would allow interfaces and experiences to be born, live, and evolve according to a user’s realities.
With mutative design, things like physical ability, lighting, and vision are accounted for automatically, allowing interfaces to be engaging and accessible to every user, without compromise.
In this session we’ll give a brief overview of the rationale and process behind mutative design and take a look at the first mutative sample app - Selene. We’ll walk through Selene’s first mutations from design and development perspectives, and explore what’s next for mutative design.
Currently working as a UI Designer at Polidea, Warsaw Academy of Arts graduate. Her interest in humans, constant question-asking and passion for design and design thinking took her to Service and Experience Design. During Summer School in Copenhagen Institute of Interactive Design she developed her skills in research, prototyping, design thinking, basic programming, workability and teamwork.
Hardware Hacking with Raspberry Pi [hands on]
The idea behind the Raspberry Pi project is to provide a small and cheap PC replacement, that can be used for teaching children basic computer science. But its able to do so much more. It has GPIO, a lot of processing power and multiple connectivity options. All this makes It a potent Arduino replacement. I would like to invite you to a hands on exploration of the Raspberry Pi GPIO port. We will start by interfacing some basic components (LEDs, buttons, etc). We will also play with a cool (and surprisingly simple) technique called Capacitive Proximity Sensing. Then, when we have learned enough, I will encourage you to let your imagination drift, and hack together a cool contraption.
