Experimental research in wearables is interwoven with electronics, textiles and sensors.
The Wearables and Interactive Products (WIP) Studio at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, provides a space for you to experiment, test and prototype project development featuring electronics, textiles, and sensors. It hosts a number of electronic workbenches each equipped with the necessary components and tools to complete most electronic projects. Specialized stations, and shared electronic components are available for more complex projects.
We have products from Arduino, Phidgets, Lego, and VEX Robotics and many others. Also in the WIP studio are a 15 needle embroidery machine (SWF-1501C) , a general purpose sewing machine, and a variety of other components used in the creation of interactive textiles.
