ECHO Dubai is the first art, design and technology festival in the Middle East. The Festival will bring leaders in art, design, and technology to Dubai for the first time, offering unparalleled access to new trends, technology, processes, and innovations, as well as the opportunity to collaborate and transfer knowledge.
The 3-day Festival will include an expo showcasing immersive installations by local and international exhibitors, a conference to exchange knowledge and generate new ideas within the industry; workshops across a range of artistic and creative disciplines hosted by international experts; and a sound festival that combines leading musical talent with audio-visual technology, to offer a truly immersive experience.
Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman will be leading a workshop in wearable technology and introducing her newest project R61.
NYC Media Lab is a proven thought leader in two emerging media and technology areas: VR/AR and data science. In the past year, we’ve completed dozens of prototyping projects with our Member Companies to explore new potentials. Faculty and student representatives from NYU, Columbia University, Pratt Institute, The New School, The School of Visual Arts, CUNY and Cornell Tech will present and demo the cutting-edge projects, prototypes and startups they’ve developed with NYC Media Lab in the 2016-17 season.
Join the Remo Haptic team, graduates of the 2017 Cohort, demonstrate their latest technology advancements of their haptic sport training tool. Remo Haptics is a wearable movement training device for athletes that record a user’s movements and directs them toward more efficient movement patterns in real time using a proprietary haptic language.
The “E-Textile Workshop: An exploration of wearable media”.
It will get you started in the world of e-textiles — learn how to build basic circuits, code simple programs and experiment with sensors. Let your creative mind flow and innovate new technology!
With the integration of sensory technology into our clothing and accessories, we have new avenues to communicate our thoughts, feelings and internal mechanisms. This 3-hour workshop is designed to get you started in the world of e-textiles. You will learn how to build basic circuits, code simple programs and experiment with sensors.
The TEK-TILES project is focused on developing ideas for embedding and manufacturing technology into fabrics.
The inaugural design sprint has challenged a collaborative R&D team from eight universities to investigate new materials and create a library of over thirty swatches that will inspire new ideas for responsible products and demonstrate the production capacity of the BF+DA p.LAB.
The team is also examining the potential for human applications and adapting production processes to accommodate the constraints of each material. Each tech-material will be assessed for its environmental and societal impacts creating the first resource for sustainable technology.
NYC Media Lab, a consortium of universities and media and technology companies, hosted a demo day featuring presentations from the second annual cohort of ten teams participating in NYC Media Lab Combine, an accelerator program to commercialize emerging media technologies from faculty and students at the city’s universities. The program is supported with generous funding from the New York City Economic Development Corporation, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, and through the support of NYC Media Lab’s corporate membership.
The Remo Haptics Team from Pratt Institute and NYU Tandon School of Engineering lead byEvan Huggins and Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman pitched their new wearable technology for competitive cyclist. Remo Haptic Training is a smart knee sleeve for sports training that helps adjust movement patterns for optimal performance using biosensing and haptic feedback.
