I've been working on the design of a band that could work with several different sensors and feedback types for rapid prototyping. The image above is of the most recent version. I use this in courses related to wearable technology design so that students 1. don't have to spend their own money purchasing several hardware electronic components, 2. can spend more time with movement-based, bodily exploration rather than technological design. I've used this band in two classes:

  • Palpability and Wearable Computing, Digital Humanities Summer Institute, Victoria, BC
  • Palpability and Wearable Computing: AME 598 Special Topics course, Arizona State University

Band details step-by-step instructions for building the band can be found on my Instructables page.
