T-shock (not to be confused with An Taoiseach) creates humorous, subversive designs with an Irish flavour. Some of these are just for fun and some appear on a range of products. T-shock produces Irish t-shirts, badges, posters and other stuff all of which are designed and printed in Ireland.
T-shock also provide a custom badge making service for organisations, events or any other kind of project. For the Dublin Mini Maker Faire T-shock will be showcasing badge-making and the offering you the chance to make your own badge.
Check out the video of a badge being made.
Do you ever want to let your shoes do the walking ? Angie Duignan has created an interactive, automated pair of shoes. Using Arduino, servo motors and a photo sensor the interactive automated shoes are instilled with a sense of identity/personality through the use of movement. The shoes comes to life only through interaction from the public. On one level her creation makes reference to the story ‘The Wizard of Oz’, however these shoes can no longer be worn and have no magical powers to transport the owner back home. Oh Well.
Check out the video below of them in action.
