This wearable robot zips up your coat – or evening gown. Together with scientists from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and fashion designers, Mohamed investigates the supportive quality of technology combined with fashion in daily life. His ambition: a universal robot-zip, assisting those, such as the elderly, who are not so nimble-fingered. Cliff is the first properly operating prototype and Mohamed will elaborate on the discoveries surrounding the ‘wearability’ of technology.
