3D Printed Gaze Actuated Wearable


2016 Finalist for Students 2016 Finalist for Experimental

What if your clothing was truly a second skin that interacted with your environment? Sponsored by Autodesk and Madworkshop Foundation, Caress of the Gaze is a project in which a 3D-printed garment responds to other people’s glances with lifelike movements. An image-sensing camera detects specifics about a viewer, including gender and age; this data is then wirelessly transferred to a microcontroller that directs the garment’s Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuators to expand, contract, and create motion as if they’re a natural part of the wearer’s muscle system responding to stimuli.
