The Emergence of e-textiles

Open to: Academic, Alumni, Public, Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

Imagine a piece of fabric that can be tapped or swiped just like you would a touch screen? Or if sensors woven into the cover of your chair told you when you were slouching? Electronic textiles are where computer science, electrical engineering, textiles and design all come together.

Becky Stewart will discuss its rise and how it could change the way we interact with the world around us, including during live performance.

This talk was awarded the annual Daphne Oram Lecture, and is generously supported by the British Science Association.

The talk will run from 12 midday until 1pm, leading into a “Meet the Maker” session with Becky as part of the Millennium Gallery series until 2pm.

The British Science Association’s Award Lectures on tour is supported by 3M.
