Current fellow Kaho Abe will teach a Playable Fashion Weekend Workshop on January 5th and 6th for aspiring teenage designers at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center in New York.

First, You’ll get a crash course in building and soldering the simple but powerful electronic devices used to play your favorite games. Next, you’ll learn to create your own “soft” electronics (buttons and sensors made from wearable materials like conductive thread and fabrics) to merge your devices with your fashion taste. Finally you’ll embed your hand-made parts into a clothing of your own design and use them to play a real video game!
