Dynamic Textile Patterns: designing with smart textiles

Abstract: New smart textile materials have been investigated and show that today`s textile patterns can be designed to offer more than traditional textile patterns do. The prototypes of dynamic textile patterns designed in this thesis are brought about in a new design process that takes smart textile materials into consideration. These prototypes also exemplify new user scenarios for textile and interaction design. As they have the ability to form textile patterns with a range of expressions inherent in one textile pattern, the proposed dynamic textile pattern show that textile patterns can be used for collecting and sharing information.
