We are exploring how smart textiles may create new interactions and possibilities in Next Mobility and we would like to show 3 interactive prototypes focusing on gesture interaction, textile display, and aesthetic experience.

Ingenious Skin: natural interaction design in smart cockpit base on smart textile

Ingenious skin may invite the audience to experience a natural gesture interaction in the vehicle by swiping the embroidery pattern located on the cockpit door as a volume slider. We embroidered the conductive threads and normal yarns on Alcantara, and the unique texture and patterns were inspired by traditional Chinese embroidery and painting.

Blooming: a textile interface for displaying the status of smart cockpit layouts on seat belt

Blooming is a textile interface for displaying the status of smart cockpit layouts on seat belts in real-time. Considering the various layouts in the future cockpit we proposed a thermochromic textile display as the indication of seat status.
