This is a webspace for collecting all relevant information before and after the Touch and Feel Soft Hardware studio at TEI 2012

The studio proposal

Abstract

Soft hardware refers to electronic components, coatings, and shells built from elastic, flexible, floppy, and malleable materials. By introducing these new materials we expect to open new paths for using electronics and computations. Building electronics with textile and other soft materials may easily degrade speed, power, and storage capacities; however, these constraints can be acceptable if not down right desirable in these new contexts. In this studio we invite participants to work with soft hardware in an open-ended design session, with a special focus on touch and tactile experiences.
