Final Project

For my Final Project I created an interactive clothing

For my final project I created an interactive clothing. There were many clothing that is worked with lilypad and lights but not some outside material besides lights. So by using three servo motors I created an clothing where there are fabric flowers that bloom when there is pressure detected. I originally wanted to use lilypad for my clothing project but I somehow couldn’t figure out how to do it so I used Arduino instead(which is on the ground and not shown in the video).

What I was trying to express was the feminine shape of the flower blooming in a dress, but due to the spring and the mechanical things along with it it adds the gross look of an alien being born from the dress, which the more I look at it, the more I like about it. I think this paradox between the beauty and the alien gross look that this dress has adds more to the work compared to when it didn’t have that look.
