Playable Fashion

image

Computer hackers and fashion designers don’t usually have a lot in common. But this weekend at NYSCI, teenagers at the Playable Fashion workshop will be a little bit of both.

Twenty teens at the free, two-day workshop will learn how to hack a digital game and will design and create their own wearable, game controller glove. In the process, they’ll learn about sewing, circuits, switches, sensors and the digital tools needed to produce a video game. 

The program, a partnership between NYSCI, Eyebeam and the HIVE NYC Network, encourages a multidisciplinary approach to learning, covering skills in technology, fashion and video game design.

“The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living.” 
― Henri Poincaré
