This studio introduces methods of making and controlling inflatable fabric. We provide materials and simple fabrication processes that enable designers to rapidly prototype inflatables with simple hinging transformations or texture change. Furthermore, we introduce a customized hardware that enables designers to rapidly prototype inflatable fabric. The goal of this studio is to provide hands-on experiences of designing inflatable fabric as shape-changing materials and research on shape-changing artifacts. Basic knowledge of programming in Arduino is required. Participants should bring their own laptop for the studio.
