Dutch based designer Anouk Wipprecht works in the emerging field of "Fashionable Technology"; a rare combination of sartorial knowhow combined with engineering smarts and style, she has in a very short period created an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way. She creates technological couture; with background in fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction design, she creates systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' systems on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them.
World Health Organization estimates that 158 million people around the world need prescription to prevent low vision or near blindness. EyeCheck is a low-cost alternative for performing eye exams in areas currently underserved by vision services. The solution uses eccentric photorefraction, employing an image capture device with infrared illumination to capture the light reflected from a patient's eyes. Captured images are processed via custom built software, which provides the type of refractive error and its severity. Currently, the team's software is able to detect refractive error with over ninety percent accuracy.

Young women frequently avoid electronics and programming because of its cultural stigmas and apparent lack of creativity. How do we expand computer science culture to be more inclusive to women? Here, we introduce Sew Electric -- a book that engages young people (and adults!) who don't consider themselves techies in creating technology -- by teaching electronics and programming through a series of sewable electronics projects, from building a singing plush monster to crafting a touch-sensitive fabric piano.
In our 3rd Maker Faire year, we will show new microwave projects as well as other projects that will teach participants about radio wave propagation.rnArduino and other microcontrollers in ham radio
Being disruptive (of conventional wisdom) and respectful of kids' intelligence and creativity was the fuel behind the building of Nickelodeon. The mission was "to connect with kids and connect kids with each other through entertainment." We're taking a look at what that means in 2014, how partnering with kids and being disruptive could really take this mission farther.
