MIT researchers created a smart textile linked up with a machine learning system.
Researchers develop a comfortable, form-fitting fabric that recognizes its wearer’s activities, like walking, running, and jumping.
Our digital knitting approach enables the fabrication of 2D to 3D pressure-sensitive textile interiors and wearables
Two projects led by Irmandy Wicaksono of the Responsive Environments group, with collaborators, have been honored as finalists.
Wicaksono researches and invents electronic textiles and garments with a wide range of applications.
I’d like to continue to make these connections, between traditional practices in my country and the things I’ve learned abroad.
Congratulations to project team researchers Irmandy Wicaksono, Don Derek Haddad, and collaborator Loni Landon!
