Craft Technology

Craft technology is our term for the interweaving of computation with craft materials. This blending can take many forms, including the application of specialized software to aid in the design and construction of crafts (such as mechanical toys and paper sculpture) and in the creation of craft objects with embedded intelligence. Our particular interests lie in the educational realm – that is, we are especially interested in extending the landscape of children’s craft activities.

In Memoriam …

We’re @SmoothOn resin casting #ThreadBoards for our @NSF project on #etextile tools for #debugging to get ready for workshops with kids and teachers this fall!

We had a great time working with CU @sciencedisco and CU Summer Discovery students to co-design prototypes of sensory extension devices to work with the @PhETSims Color Vision SIM!

Here’s a way to create a #ThreadBoard by casting with epoxy resin. This method allows for free-form magnet placement and makes it easy to prototype different #etextile designs. This builds on design work by @4Eyes6Senses and @CodeCraftCr8.
