    • Run for the Cure – Project Activo IAT320 Body Interface – Sketch 1 Jin Fan | Jessisca Yu
    • PROJECT CONCEPT - ACTIVO
      • "Activo" is a wearable computing shirt with a sewn LED display that reacts to users' running pattern.
      • The concept is to create a custom shirt specifically for fundraising runs, in hopes of drawing the public's awareness to the cause as well as motivating the users during the run.
      • Multiple LEDs are arranged to form the outline of the organization logo (i.e. Run for the Cure Foundation), which illuminates when in active use.
      • The "Activo" consists of two main components: the shoe sole and the LED display T-shirt.
        • A soft switch that acts as a touch sensor is embedded into a custom-made shoe sole, in which the user can insert into their running shoe. This detects the number of steps the runner takes, while the Arduino keeps count of it and turns on the LEDs accordingly. The more the user runs, the more eye-catching it is as LEDs continues to light up.
        • The LED display T-shirt is sewed together through the use of conductor threads, conductive tape and the sewed in Arduino board. This provides the user with continuous feedback regarding the progress, and thereby motivates them to build up endurance and keep running.

    • EXPERIENCE
      • This shirt is most effective when worn by more fundraising supporters, as this creates a sense of unity and accomplishment to the wearers.
      • Main interaction:
        • Users' running speed corresponds to the amount of LED displayed
        • Interaction between runners as they work towards a common goal
      • For the wearers:
        • Adds to rewarding emotional value (i.e. Pride & satisfaction in contributing to a good cause)
        • Makes their progress visible and users become more conscious of their actions, contributions and how they may be perceived by others. This challenges them to push even harder and desire to do better when compared to other runners.
        • wearing the shirt is well-intentioned; the more attention they want to draw, the more effort they have to put in.
        • Communication with the world by give exposure to the organization the runner is promoting
      • For bystander:
        • witness
        • Provoke thoughts of supporting the cause
    • CONCEPT RESEARCH
      • Inspirational works that reflects our concept
      • E-textiles
        • Electronic textiles (e-textiles) are fabrics that have electronics and interconnections woven into them
      • Cute circuit Kinetic-dress http://www.cutecircuit.com/projects/wearables/kinetic-dress/
        • Depending on the amount and speed of the wearer's movement the embroidery changes pattern, displaying the wearer's mood to the audience.
        • dress slowly lights up with a blue-circles pattern that moving creates a magic halo around the wearer.
      • LED dress by Hussanni's http://www.talk2myshirt.com/blog/archives/176
        • Interactive platform that lives in the intersection of fashion, craft and technology
        • Video dress with display of colors and light
        • Created from 15.000 LEDs that are embedded in the fabric.
    • TECHNICAL RESEARCH
      • Works that reflect our technical concept
      • Joy slippers: http://www.instructables.com/id/Joy-Slippers/
        • Website from Instructables
        • Draw inspiration from their sewing method and ways to achieve the clean look
      • Wearable LED http://www.cs.colorado.edu/~buechley/diy/diy_tank.html
        • Leah Buechley (E-textile technology)
      • For our project:
        • Inspired by e-textile (fabrics that have electronics and interconnections woven into them such as sensors)
        • Computerized clothing that allows the runner to determine their running progress
    • TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION/SCOPE
      • Input sensor used:
        • Read sensory data from participants through the use of soft switch located in the shoe sole
        • Arduino USB board
      • Output actuators:
        • Display of LED lights that corresponds to users' running movement
      • Other materials
        • Conductive threads/ tape
        • 12 LEDs
        • 11 resistors
        • 24" Alligator clip
        • Fabric and sewing supply
