"I designed LINKX, a language toy for autistic toddlers. Important aspect of my process was the involvement of 'autism experts'. During exploration I did this by means of contextmapping techniques. I evaluated LINKX on paper with parents and tested the prototype with three autistic children in several play-sessions."
I know, I know, this is not the kind of thing we usualy post on this blog, but… It's just irrestible! (only portuguese will understand but I will kind translate)
*In an online portuguese auction site, kind of like eBay, someone is selling a 14" monitor. Question asked: "Is it a TFT ou or CRT?"
Answer: "I don't care. If t's in the Lisboa area I can deliver it by hand."*
Seet it for tourself.

"Fabcell is a flexible, non-emissive, and multi-color fabric module. In Fabcell, fibers dyed with liquid crystal ink and conductive yarns connected to electronic components are woven into a square textile. By applying voltage to the conductive yarn, and changing the fabric's temperature, the color of fabric surface can be changed. Arranged in matrices, Fabcells display images on the curves of flexible textiles. And used for clothing or with soft objects, it enables them a new expressions of visual imaginary."

Music textile is a large tactile interface for playing electronic music. The performer plays it simply by moving his / her hand onto it. The hand contact XY position is transmited to a computeur via a 12 Bytes resolution Midi card. This allows 4000 by 4000 points resolution. Two conductiv fabrics are fixed on a frame, each one weaved with conductive threads in a different direction. When the performer presses any point of this textile instrument, the two fabrics connect and the current eletrical value is sent to the computer. It's simply based on a voltage divider resistive principle. I developed this project at the National Scool of Industrial Creation (ENSCI) Paris, France, for my diploma in december 2005. Since then I got specialized in the creation of inovating electronic textiles and I continued to develop this music textile.

No passado dia 17 de Março de 2007 a Puma lançou em Antuerpia 2000 balões numa campanha para anunciar os novos produtos da linha de golfe.
Nada de estranho se os balões não tivessem sido cheios com hélio e transportassem flutuando peças da nova colecção. Estes foram lançados e Meier, uma movimentada rua de lojas, assim como perto de paragens de autocarro, táxis e estações de comboio.
O intento era enaltecer as características lúdicas e de fácil transporte e armazenamento da linha.
