Question (I asked this before, but in the wrong spot I think…):
So this question a lot more long, rambling, and open than most, but do you have any ideas for some way you could control the shape or stiffness or scrunched-up-ness or something-similar of fabric? So that you’d be able to control not just the color of certain parts of an article of clothing, but the shape as well.
One way I thought might work was attaching thread to two different points and using a motor to twist the thread up and bring them closer together, but that’d require a whole lot of motors to have something really interesting, and also aren’t motors pretty heavy to go inside clothing? (Unless there are actually light motors? I confess I haven’t looked very hard.)
