"The outfit is made of material with integrated sensors that react when someone comes close or touches it," says Dan Riley, who was responsible for the technology.
Jeannine Han feels that the aesthetic aspect is important and has put a great deal of effort into developing the pattern. She has also received assistance from the Gothenburg Strap Factory Museum in producing the straps for the outfit. The project is called "textile design for a nomad."
"The outfit is for a traveling nomad who wishes to communicate with other nomads, so the sound is inspired by nature," says Jeannine Han, and Dan Riley continues:
"The sound is like a harp. The next step for us will be to find a way to control the music better."
For her master's degree project, Jeannine Han, in collaboration with Dan Riley, will start a band where one or more of the band members will wear the outfit and thus play themselves.
"We also want to develop the technology to make it easy to produce the clothing in the future," concludes Jeannine Han.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
