Special Coordinator Prize! 

Crafting Fashion with Robots

The project aims at exploring cross-disciplinary approaches and applications in the design of new on-demand fashion accessories using a modified anthropomorphic robotic arm. To this end, the project proposes a partnership between AtomLab, an innovative consulting company fully engaged in the maker movement, and Wemake, a manufacturing company in the field of footwear design and manufacturing led by Zoe Romano. Both partners hold valuable skills in the domain of advanced manufacturing and digital fabrication, enabling the achievement of deeper knowledge, stemming from the use of a robotic arm in the production of on-demand accessories.

 

What Happens Next?

On top of the financial support, the winners will follow a 9 month acceleration process in the 4 local hubs, where they will be comprehensively mentored to test, prototype and finally launch their innovations.
