#Fab13 held the “Challenge on Fashion and Assistive Technology” to recognize the ways society embraces digital fabrication in the most intimate way. Technology gets closer, it becomes an extension of our body to assist and augment our abilities, to gather and process our data. How can society adapt and benefit from the democratic access to knowledge and skills found in Fab Labs, to improve the life of people? How does the industry of fashion transform with digital distributed production and communities?
They called on the participants of Fab13 to demonstrate the power of creation through visionary prototypes and innovative concepts. During the conference days makers, inventors, thinkers, and innovators had access to the Super Fab Lab in order to develop their projects, ideas and technologies to prescribe the impact of wearables, digital fashion, and assistive technology, through digital fabrication and global collaborations.
Anybody with a ticket for FAB13 could participate. They encouraged groups to develop proposals during the FAB 13 Conference (from Tuesday to Thursday).
Projects were presented at the main stage of Fab Festival on Saturday afternoon August 5, 2017.
The event is supported by Shapeways, with lots of prizes for the winners of the challenge.
