Recently I have been able to give out the fabric triggers to a few test users for an informal experience and feedback collection.
The users were given a fabric prototype to keep for a few days in their homes. There were also given a scribble pad with a few questions to record their thoughts and ideas and were asked to take photographs of where and how they tried to use these fabric triggers.
This process has been extremely interesting and insightful. I will soon share more findings and user feedback on this blog.
Pocket trigger is a knitted pouch that acts differently according to the objects that you put in it.
The pocket can sense if the object is conductive or not. It can also measure the size and maybe weight of the object depending on how much it causes the pocket to stretch.
This soft fabric trigger needs a conductive object from the surrounding to fuel it. The cushion can be placed on top of conductive objects, squeezed between, placed under other objects.. the ways to make it work as numerous as the objects around..
