Participation in Tiree Techwave 4

We took a group of product design students up to the Tiree Techwave at the end of October 2012.  The Tiree Techwave is  ‘a hands-on making and meeting event exploring the edges of technology’.Tiree is a remote island in the Hebrides of Scotland.

The aim was to see if the change of a physical and social environment has an effect on the student’s ability to learn new design skills and to explore new design ideas.

 

  

 

 

 

Attending 3-day Plastic Electronics Workshop

I am attending a 3-day interactive workshop next week (1st – 3rd March) run by the UK Technology Strategy Board that is “to find end-use applications and associated designs that can be used within plastic electronics and produce demonstrators with potential for real commercial value … The Technology Strategy Board has allocated up to £3m to fund industry-led collaborative demonstrator development projects arising from the workshop.” Should be an interesting and fun experience.
