  • 2. Hello!Image: Rain Ashford
  • 3. I’m an avid self-tracker and fan ofsensors!Images: Rain Ashford
  • 4. I use all sorts of sensors…EEG (Electroencephalography), GSR (Galvanic Skin Response), magnometer, temperature,proximity, light, movement, barometric (temp, altitude, pressure)Images: Sensors: Seeed Studio & Sparkfun, MindWave Mobile, Rain Ashford
  • 5. I use sensors and other electronics to create interactive wearables and artImages:RainAshford
  • 6. Soldering whilst wearing Necomimi brainwave cat earsI’m interested in… Social interaction – formal and informalevents where one is put on the spot/excruciating circumstances: networking,bars, clubs, meet ups, introductions,conferences, etc.Building multi-sensor wearables whichoutput data on the wearer’s physiologicalsigns comprised of various componentssuch as: a logging device sensors – tracking physiological signs:EEG, GSR, heart rate, accelerometer,temperature, etc. Actuators C code / algorithmsTo be… Visually reactive Sonically reactive Might record sound / display feedbackfrom user cameraImages: Rain Ashford
  • 7. For me, the availability of sewable electronic & e-textiles has revolutionised the way I andmany artists & designers work…Images: LilyPad Arduino + accessories, Adafruit Flora pics by Rain Ashford,LilyPad Dev kit by Protosnap, Sensors: Seeed Studio & Sparkfun
  • 8. …I enjoy incorporating the technologyinto the designImages: Rain Ashford
