Fashioning Technology: Come Witness the Future of Crafting!
What will our homes and clothes look like 5 years from now? 10 years? 50 years? If the new book Fashioning Technology (O’Reilly) is any indication, it will involve a healthy dose of “smart” crafting–a term coined by author Syuzi Pakhchyan–to describe crafting with “smart” materials that react and change in response to their environment. In this exciting new book, readers can learn how to make: LED bracelets, chandeliers and headphones; pattern-changing blinds; a space invaders tote bag that alerts you to incoming phone calls; a “birdie” brooch that “chirps” to sunlight; and much, much more!
Visit the book site, fashioningtechnology.com and join in on the new smart crafting community where you can post up your own projects, keep up to date with book events, projects, watch videos, and more!
