230212 First Breath of interactive dress.
The first breath of our project, which means that we have achieved a first target, to create a mechanism to move parts of a cloth. Furthermore is a first understanding to the relation of cloth’s patterns to an inflatable pattern.
For inflator we have used a custom made patent: a tube and a manual pump. To control valves we hacked manual air flow valves to work with a servo. To control servo and the whole “breath” mechanism we used arduino uno.
Next step is to create our inflatable volumes sewed in patterns of clothes. Stay tuned to our channel to discover more. It will be a nice journey.
Shapeshifting is a common theme in mythology, folklore, and fairy tales. It is also found in epic poems, science fiction literature, fantasy literature, children’s literature, Shakespearean comedy, ballet, film, television, comics, and video games. In its broadest sense, shapeshifting occurs when a being (usually human) either (1) has the ability to change its shape into that of another person, creature, or other entity or (2) finds its shape involuntarily changed by someone else…………
A young character may learn of his shape-shifting abilities, and exploring them becomes part of a Bildungsroman. Mavin Manyshaped and her son Peter in Sheri S. Tepper‘s True Gamenovels are both shifters, being a subspecies of humans having this power, and in both, the learning of their abilities is a large portion of their growing up.
