EXPRESSIVE MATERIALS

The Moonrace cape klein 3.jpg

\\ PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Product designers and material researchers are collaborating to jointly develop a fully new generation of smart materials that combine touch sensitivity with luminosity. The benefits of these expressive Light Touch Materials (LTM) still need to be further explored and mapped out in such a way that designers can fully understand how to design new applications with future computational materials. I have looked into the tactile potential of this material to design for its interaction qualities.
