Emergence of E-Textiles

Synopsis
Can we 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. Dr Rebecca Stewart discusses 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 2016 Daphne Oram Lecture. The Daphne Oram Awards focus on digital innovation and is awarded to an early career researcher for pushing technological boundaries, or for driving forward computer science.[57 minutes]
