fabricating Electronic tattoos with DuoSkin

Prerequisites: None

Load: 2 P.M. - 6 P.M. on Jan. 17 - 20 (Four 4-hour sessions over one week)

Time Outside Class: Approx. 1-3 hours total

This course introduces the DuoSkin fabrication process for creating electronic tattoos that are both aesthetic and functional (see http;//duoskin.media.mit.edu). The course is broken down into three stages:

1) Learn the DuoSkin fabrication process by making an NFC tag tattoo

2)  Envision and design your own applications for electronic tattoos

3) Prototype and test your application

This course can help you envision the future of wearable devices and on-skin user interfaces through a hands-on approach. During the last day of the course, students will share their applications with the rest of the class.
