Crafting butterfly lace- Conductive Multi-color sensor-Actuator Structure

Kristi Kuusk, Marjan Kooroshnia and Jussi Mikkonen The development of Butterfly Lace started and carried on as an extension of ArcinTex network workshop (Arcintex, 2014). Multi disciplinary team of researchers collaborated while situated in three countries, to realize conductive multi-color sensor-actuator structure. Over several prototyping sessions, Skype conversations and e-mail exchange, the lace is made […]

This week a horse chestnut was cut down (because of the risk of collapse), and a beech has been culled and everywhere “vinglokan” pops […]
