Revisited: "Critical Making Course Exhibition"

Critical Making students exhibited projects they’d created for their final assignment of the semester at the Jacobs Institute Design Fest on May 7, 2015. From high-tech skirts that critiqued the personal bubble to smart tampons that warn users when they’re leaking, from armor aimed at making wifi signals visible to adventure applications that encourage urban exploration, the student teams pushed the boundaries of recognizable wearable products to ask new questions about our environment through technology. Previous provocations this semester included technologically augmenting the kitchen and human powered transportation.
