Design House mashes printable electronics with performance textiles

Pittsburgh Jam • March 31st @ CMU Integrated Innovation Institute

What could you do with a printable force sensor and sewn lycra? This is one of the questions that will be posed on March 31 at the Design House Pittsburgh Mashup in partnership with Catalyst Connection. Occurring the evening before the IDSA Central District Conference, designers from all over Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan will have a chance at presenting their ideas for wearable meets high tech printed electronics.

We will be mashing two women owned manufacturers in the Pittsburgh area. One is Butler Technologies, a 25+ year old company specializing in membrane switches, graphic overlays, dials, flex circuits, silicone rubber keypads and all sorts of high tech interfacings. The other is Aero Tech Designs, making high end cycling gear - worn by Lance Armstrong back in the day - from reflective materials, foams and high tech fabrics. What crazy ideas will come out of this? Attend our Jam to find out!
