Body-Laptop Interface
I’m working on a series of these knitted interfaces for electronic devices. They’re a criticism of how engrossed we are in our technological artifacts, even to the point of self-harm through RSI and related disorders. Now you, too, can make yourself a laptop wooly jumper for privacy, concentration, warmth, and style, since the FAT Lab is all about open source, and nothing says hip-hop like a laptop sweater tutorial. Plans for future devices include a cellphone-arm-head interface, iPod/DS/PSP/BBerry-to-face interface, a TV remote-hand interface, among others. Suggestions are welcome.

James Snyder did a nice little write up and video piece about the G.R.L. for time.com. I wanted to throw him some shine because besides doing his research he managed to link to examples of our work (outside of time.com) 10 times in the course of one article! It drives me crazy when I read online news articles about things which exist on the internet but don’t get linked up because they are not on the organizations server (NYT for example is apparently unaware of how to use the href tag). The href is a wonderful thing. And since Theo continually gets left out of the story I thought I’d atone with some href love:
