Haptics Workshop

Interested in learning more about wearables and haptics, but not sure where to start? This workshop will provide all the tools you need to start working on your own projects. Participants will learn about haptic feedback and will experience how different types of inputs (temperature, pressure, light...) create distinct sensory outputs. You'll do all of this using simple Arduino boards. We will teach attendees how to use this introductory workshop as a springboard for more complex projects. Please bring your own laptop. We will provide all the software and hardware needed for the workshop.

MAKE/MODEL Hackathon

MAKE/MODEL is a hackathon-style event focused on giving participants a hands-on glimpse into the design and manufacturing process. Co-developed by NEW INC and A/D/O, the event will bring together 100 participants to prototype project and product ideas together around the theme of Future Urban Living, with a particular focus on design solutions developed by and for the communities most likely to be impacted by ongoing changes to our city.

Designing for Manufacturing

Spencer Wright of Centerline Labs and John Briscella of AMiNiMAL Studio lead this workshop on designing for manufacturing. They’ll take you through exercises to help you understand the tools and programs to use in designing your model, building your prototype, and developing a Bills of Materials. Then, Spencer and John will discuss the strengths, weaknesses and pricing of different materials and how to make sure you’re setting yourself up for manufacturing success. Passcode: futureworkspartner
