So delightfully bizarre! Mika Satomi and Clemens Pichler developed these DJ hoodies with soft switches, zipper switches, and a knit stretch sensor to help performers engage in a DJ battle. Their project documentation is stellar!

DJ Hoodie is a wearable interface that includes 4 channel zipper switch, fabric buttons with LED indicators and fabric pressure sensors. Two of these hoodies are connected with knitted stretch sensors on the hoods. It interfaces with computer with arduino using Firmata library and Pduino.
