Pourquoi faire simple quand on peut faire compliqué !
Through this workshop we will experiment three possibilities for harvesting energy with textile materials. We will explore textiles that generate electricity with piezoelectric, thermoelectric and triboelectric effects. Along these three paths we will get hands on materials and electrical fixtures that can harvest energy. A part of the workshop will be dedicated to quantify the amount of energy we can manage to harvest. Finally we will also discuss use cases with that kind of technics.
We will also have the chance to hack the famous DAMART Thermolactyl to use it as the futuristic wearable energy harvester.
