Just got back from the Digital Media Zone open house! I’ll devote some more time to the DMZ later, but I ran into the EdgeLab which shares space at the DMZ. They were making the coolest Social Innovation tools with Arduino that I’ve ever seen. Interactive clothing with predefined words that can be emitted from a speaker or read off an LED. Designed for children and adults with motor function difficulties, this is just an amazing use of Arduino and designed in such a way that this clothing can be specifically produced by anyone, anywhere!
I really encourage everyone to take a look at the website (http://edgelab.ryerson.ca)!
