Wednesday February 4th 2015, 12-2pm at the University in Antananarivo, Madagascar
This workshop will start with a short introduction to electronics & textiles, introducing new materials that can be used to create functioning circuits, sensors and actuators that are entirely textile. We will then hack open speakers to see how they are made and understand how they work. And then we will re-make these speakers by sewing electromagnetic coils into fabric using conductive thread.
We share the science behind how speakers work and what materials make good membranes for moving air, translating digital audio files into airwaves we can hear.
