Project details

Wearkit Is a technological innovation for creating stage costumes for live performances that change trough Interaction with the performer during a performance or stage show. 

Wearkit is a low-tech prop comprising modules and sensors placed directly on the skin that can measure heart rate, muscle activity and body movements, plus a covering costume part (fabric, feathers, scales or other innovative materials).

It's an open source device that makes the invisible visible by expressing emotions visually!
