Feb 1, 2022, 12:20PM to 2:10PM

Welcome! The main objectives for today are reviewing your brainstorming sketches, re-introducing ourselves, and becoming familiar with the space.


  1. In-person introductions

Homework Review

We’ll spend the first half of the class reviewing and discussing your brainstorming sketches There are a lot of posts to explore and we’d like everyone to have a chance, so we’ll keep the pace moving along. When your post comes up, please try to keep your explanation concise but give each example enough time that we can digest the work. As others talk, please always be thinking of the question you might ask.


Five-minute mid-class rest break.

Vest Plan

We’ll discuss our plan for each student to construct a personalized vest as a testbed for project samples.

Slideshow: The Vest


We will quickly assign you into groups of two or three for a quick five-minute integrative discussion. Please discuss the work we’ve just reviewed and come up with a novel wearable project idea inspired by the examples. Also discuss, what worked, what didn’t work, and what you think has potential. Afterward, we’ll all meet again for a quick round of explaining your project idea.

Assignment Five

The next assignment will be introduced on Thursday after a hands-on introduction to heat-sealing.

Optional Facilities Tour

If you are new to the IDeATe Hunt Library facilities, we can take you on a brief tour.
