Remote-Folding Shirt #WearableWednesday

Madi Maxey and Mari Kussman (aka CRATED) have been experiementing at a residency at the Visible Futures Lab at SVA, and Zygomatic is one of their prototypes:

Zygomatic is a tessellating shirt controlled by a computer interface. We think this is just a small segue to modular clothing systems and a different kind of manufacturing. The pattern for this garment is essentially a square and has minimal waste, making it (hypothetically) simple to produce.

We believe that technology should integrate seamlessly into wearables. With this in mind, Zygomatic’s “brain” attaches to a tag at the back-neck, allowing the shirt to function normally when not attached to a computer.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
