How do you think, could a dress or a jacket make you feel more confident, evoke pleasant memories, or communicate the emotions of your partner at a distance? Yes, it certainly can. By joining this course, you will find out not only how but will create your own vibrotactile feedback embedded in a wearable form, such as a garment or an accessory.

Course leader

Yulia Zhiglova, Junior Researcher of the Human-Computer Interaction group in Tallinn University.

Target group

Although this course welcomes everyone who is interested in wearable tech and who possesses knowledge of interaction design and software/hardware development, we believe that the game designers, fashion designers, and product designers from both creative and health and well-being industries will benefit the most.

Course aim

This one-week hands-on experimental course will introduce core design principles related to novel wearable technology with a focus on vibrotactile feedback. The main goal is to explore how to design and build wearables that communicate rich information via tactile sense.
