Unfolding Space Allows the Blind to See with Their Hands
Interaction designer Jakob Kilian has developed a device that allows the blind to see with their hand using a tool that he calls Unfolding Space. As he explains, “The ‘Unfolding Space’ project deals with sensory substitution: A phenomenon by which the function of one missing or dysfunctional sensory modality is replaced (substituted) by stimulating another one. The outcome is a prototype that projects a 3D picture, generated by a special camera, as vibration patterns on the back of the hand.”

Pictorial Guide To The Unofficial Electronic Badges Of DEF CON 27 | Hackaday
DEF CON has become the de facto showplace of the #Badgelife movement. It’s a pageant for clever tricks that transform traditional green rectangular circuit boards into something beautiful, unique, and often times hacky.

Today I’ve gathered up about three dozen badge designs seen at DC27. It’s a hint of what you’ll see in the hallways and meetups of the conference. From hot-glue light pipes and smartphone terminal debugging consoles to block printing effects and time of flight sensors, this is a great place to get inspiration if you’re thinking of trying your hand at unofficial badge design.

The Badgies: Clever, Crazy, And Creative Ideas In Electronic Design | Hackaday
Engineering creativity comes to life when you have to design around a set of constraints. We can do just about anything with enough time, talent, and treasure, but what can you do when shackled with limitations? Some of the most creative electronic manufacturing tricks spring to life when designing conference badges, as the ability to built multiples, to come in under budget, and most importantly to have the production finished in time are all in play. This happens at conferences throughout the year and all over the globe, but the highest concentration I’ve seen for these unique pieces of art is at DEF CON every year. I

Anouk Wipprecht FashionTech: rethinking fashion in the age of digitalisation
What does fashion lack? "Microcontrollers" according to Dutch based Hi-Tech Fashion Designer and Innovator Anouk Wipprecht. As she is working in the emerging field of "FashionTech"; a rare combination of fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction/user experience design. Producing an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way: she creates technological couture; with systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' systems on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them.

Strangely ahead of her time; Anouk combines the latest in science and technology to make fashion an experience that transcends mere appearances. Sensors embedded in the design monitor the space around the wearer, and body-sensors check in on stress levels as comfort or anxiety.

Learning About Wearable Engineering While Trying To Un-Taboo A Topic | Hackaday
During her Hackaday Superconference talk Sarah Petkus discusses her latest project that uses wearable technology to sense and react to her own body. She Bon is reminiscent of the French for “so good” and is a project whose aim transcends the technical challenges. Sarah uses engineering as a way to facilitate adults having healthy dialogs with one another about sex.

Depending on your profession, this discussion is likely not appropriate for work — it’s not sexual, but it’s fundamentally about sex — so don’t click through the video without thinking twice. But we respect Sarah’s courage for leading a project that wants to make sure there actually are places where it is possible to have these conversations and a way to get them started.

A Non-Toxic Thermoelectric Generator for Wearable Tech - IEEE Spectrum
A new way to harvest electricity from body heat could inspire new wearable devices that never need to be plugged in. The millivolts of electricity this thermoelectric technology produces mandates slim power usage from any electronics plugged in to its feed. The new, wearable thermoelectric generator is also sourced from non-toxic and non-allergenic substances, making it a viable candidate for wearable technology. In fact, says Trisha Andrew, associate professor of chemistry at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, the substrate on which the generator is built is plain old cotton fabric.

Three-Conductor Pivot for E-Textiles is Better Than Wires | Hackaday
Pivots for e-textiles can seem like a trivial problem. After all, wires and fabrics bend and flex just fine. However, things that are worn on a body can have trickier needs. Snap connectors are the usual way to get both an electrical connection and a pivot point, but they provide only a single conductor. When [KOBAKANT] had a need for a pivoting connection with three electrical conductors, they came up with a design that did exactly that by using a flexible circuit board integrated to a single button snap.

How L’Oréal Designed The UV Sense To Fit On Your Fingernail | Digital Trends
The UV Sense is a battery-free wearable electric sensor you stick onto your fingernail. It can measure UV exposure, which you can track via a companion app on your smartphone. Through testing, the L’Oréal team found that placing the UV Sense on nails returned the most accurate feedback to UV exposure. Since taking the battery out helped create a thinner and smaller sensor, Béhar saw the opportunity to disguise it as nail art. For even more versatility, the team is in the process of creating bracelets and watch accessories with the sensor, as well as clips that can attach to sunglasses.

Battery-Free Biosensor Measures Your Health by Drinking Your Sweat | Digital Trends
At present, the majority of wearable biomarker sensors require onboard batteries to power them. While that’s perfectly acceptable for some use cases, it’s not as well-suited for tasks such as continuous tracking for medical purposes. To solve this problem, researchers from Northwestern University have developed a battery-free soft skin patch that’s able to wirelessly gather data about the body by testing sweat components. In time, the team hopes that this technology will be useful for clinical applications such as cystic fibrosis diagnosis and rehabilitation tracking among stroke survivors.

CarePredict: Senior Health Care Monitoring Technology
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) make up the patterns of our lives. ADLs like eating, drinking, bathing, toileting, walking, sitting, sleeping and more, all form our individual patterns; which change before many health or functional problems emerge.

CarePredict has developed a sophisticated array of sensors within a stylish, wrist-worn wearable for seniors to detect these changes – Tempo. Using 24/7 data from the Tempo wearable, coupled with smart indoor location tracking, deep machine learning and predictive data analytics, CarePredict understands the daily tempo of each individual. As subtle, but meaningful, changes occur in these daily patterns – like abnormal repetition of activities, increased bathroom use, or increased sedentary behavior – CarePredict detects and reports these shifts which could lead to health problems.

By deeply understanding the ADL patterns of each senior and the changes in those patterns, CarePredict provides powerful predictive analytics of impending declines in health or functional status. Today, these actionable insights highlight patterns that could lead to conditions, such as an increasing fall risk, urinary tract infections, malnutrition and depression.

Kitty Yeung On Tech-Fashion Designs and the Wearables Industry | Hackaday
If there is a field which has promise verging on a true breakout, it is that of wearable electronics. We regularly see 3D printing, retrocomputing, robotics, lasers, and electric vehicle projects whose advances are immediately obvious. These are all exciting fields in which the Hackaday community continually push the boundaries, and from which come the astounding pieces of work you read on these pages daily. Of course the projects that merge textiles and electronics are pushing boundaries in the same way, except for that it’s often not obvious at first glance. Why is that?

Wearables are a field in which hard work and ingenuity abound, but pulling off the projects that stand out and go beyond mere ordinary garments adorned with a few twinkly LEDs or EL wire is hard. Wearables have a sense of either still seeking its killer application or its technological enabler, and it was this topic that physicist, textilist, and artist Kitty Yeung touched upon in her talk at the recent Hackaday Superconference.

Health Tags Disappear until Needed | Health Tech Insider
After the cool factor wears off with health and wellness wearables, ease of use and unobtrusiveness matter more when people move to the next thing and get on with their lives. In order to convince most people to continue to use wearables and to attract new waves of users, technology developers need to embrace passive designs. The original Spire Stone that launched in 2014 was a brooch-like clip-on device with one-week battery life and a $150 price tag. The first model tracked respiration and motion, sending data via Bluetooth low energy to an iOS device and app from which the data was sent to the cloud.

Spire recently launched Health Tags, small devices about the size of a laundry tag that users adhere to clothing.

Automatic Sunglasses For the Lazy Hacker | Hackaday
[Andreas] may have created the ultimate lazy hacker accessory: automatic sunglasses, or “Selfblending sunglasses” as he creatively titled his video. If you can’t tell from the name, these are glasses that you never have to take off. If the light is dim, they move away from your eyes. Going back outside to bright light? The glasses move to protect your eyes.

The glasses consist of a couple of micro servos which move tinted lenses toward or away from the user’s eyes. A side-mounted Arduino Uno reads a CdS cell light sensor and drives the servos. Why an Uno rather than a much more wearable Arduino Nano? It’s what [Andreas] had lying around.

Widespread use of the knitting technique could boost the industry's efficiency—cutting down on materials, labor, shipping, and time, as the products can be made start-to-finish in one place.

CloudDX brings VR/AR to hospitals
Developed by Dr. Sonny Kohli and the Cloud DX team as Canada's entry in the recently-completed Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE competition, the Vitaliti is a wearable medical device that continuously records a patient's vital signs, collects data on symptoms, and uses artificial intelligence to autonomously diagnose 19 separate health conditions. At the Singularity University Canada Summit, Cloud DX is revealing a new mixed reality (virtual and augmented) application for clinical triage and decision support. By connecting Vitaliti to Microsoft's HoloLens, doctors will be able to see a live 3D holographic display of the patient's vital signs in the HoloLens headset.

Knitting ALUs (and Flipdots) @ Hackaday
Irene Posch] is big into knitted circuits. And while most of the textile circuits that we’ve seen are content with simply conducting enough juice to light an LED, [Irene]’s sights are set on knittable arithmetic logic units (ALUs). While we usually think of transistors as the fundamental building-blocks of logic circuits, [Irene] has developed what is essentially a knit relay. Be sure to watch the video after the break to see it in construction and in action.
