food for your stomach


Fee­ding 15 sle­ep depri­ved hac­kers is not an easy task and during the AZ Resi­dency only 3 peo­ple were bra­ve enough to put their culi­nary talents to the test: Joel, Vitor and Mari­a­na. Everyo­ne agre­ed that their home­ma­de meals were awe­so­me and no bug reports were filed. Sin­ce we beli­e­ve in sha­ring, here are Joel’s deli­ci­ous open sour­ce reci­pes (in fren­ch com­me il faut):

a glove that lights up when you shake hands

light up glove

This mit­ten lights up when its wea­rer sha­kes hands with some­o­ne. It has two expo­sed soft con­tacts around the thumb and across the palm whi­ch, when brid­ged by bare skin, turn on the LED embed­ded on the flower. The mit­ten itself was cre­a­ted by fashi­on desig­ner Isa­bel Tomás, and we then sewed a sim­ple tou­ch swit­ch cir­cuit onto it using con­duc­ti­ve fabric and thre­ad. It also works with high fives and hol­ding hands 🙂

Isa­bel and I desig­ned this as a soft cir­cuits exer­ci­se for some upco­ming mate­ri­als workshops. You can find all the ins­truc­ti­ons and ima­ges we pre­pa­red for this pur­po­se @ open­Ma­te­ri­als:
