At the FabLab RUC lab at Trailerpark I/O you will learn how to design and develop wearable light devices based on an introduction to Arduino and LED light programming. Light up your skateboard, put flashing lights on your bike – imagination is the limit.
Wearable technology are clothing and accessories incorporating computer and advanced electronic technologies, with smartwatches and activity trackers being two of the more common examples. But what says we can’t create our own wearables?
As part of Trailerpark I/O, we are doing a lab on wearable tech and wearable LED lights with the guys from FabLab RUC, an experimental research and learning environment at Roskilde University.
FabLab RUC consists of an open fab lab, rapid prototyping laboratory and digital production workshops. At the fab lab, which is open for all, you can work with everything from wood, plastics, metal and cloth to electronics, programming and computer controlled manufacturing, and build a prototype of any technological system.
During the lab at I/O, you will be guided through the core elements of developing wearable devices, and learn to design wearable light devices based on an introduction to Arduino programming and LED light programming. Light up your skateboard, put flashing lights on your bike – imagination is the limit. Participants are requested to bring their own laptop.
The lab has room for 15 participants. Everyone is welcome to apply for a seat.
Note that you can only apply for one lab, as all labs at I/O take place between 10am and 12.30pm.
Trailerpark I/O – unfolding the world of art, design and technology
Trailerpark I/O, a one-day event in Copenhagen on July 29, amplifies curiosity, celebrates ideas and showcases what happens when creativity, radical ideas and technology meet. The event exhibits futuristic and visionary ideas, talks by thought-leaders and troublemakers from around the globe, and labs, where people can co-develop ideas with leading experts.
The labs at I/O are all about getting involved, playing around and creating value together. The idea is to gather people and startups around a specific challenge or theme and together with experts and great facilitators try to develop new solutions together. We believe in an arena where the exploratory approach trumps the fear of failing and where collaboration is more important than showing off.
