Dublin’s first ever Mini Maker Faire was a massive success! Thanks so much to our infinitely creative makers and hardworking volunteers. We’ve had a great response from both participants and visitors and can’t wait til next years event!
We have a few pictures from the even posted here, and please send along any that you took yourself you’d like to share at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Just to note: Dublin Mini Maker Faire t-shirts are still for sale in the Science Gallery shop for €10!
Tarraing anáil invites you to rethink the most natural of all tasks: breathing. Step into the darkness and become the composer of your very own personal sound and light show. This intensely intimate bodily function is amplified by a smart corset, that unlike other corsets, allows you to breathe fully. It is embedded with electronics including sensors and fibre optics. The respiratory breath sensors measure your breathing behaviour and translate it into sound and light.

This work is the collaboration of Shirley Coyle, researcher and designer in the field of wearable technologies and smart textiles, and Jiann Hughes, interactive artist and researcher.
