<3-bit is a workshop on wearable technology and sound experimentation. The aim of the workshop is to create a shirt capable of capturing and transmitting your heartbeat though the use of DIY electronics and creative coding. The workshop consists on a practical introduction to Arduino programming using the LilyPad micro-controller and experimenting with handmade speaker coils and building soft-circuits on fabric. Though the workshop the participants will be able to engage in the process of making electronic textiles and will share a fun hands-on experience with other like-minded individuals.
