Challenge Title: Smart Fabrics for Health Monitoring
Challenge Difficulty: Intermediate
Estimated Time to Complete: 48-72 hours
Required Tools/Resources: Fabric samples, sensors, microcontrollers, sewing kit

Objective

Design a smart fabric prototype that can monitor vital signs such as heart rate, temperature, and activity levels in real-time.

Research

Research existing smart fabric technologies and health monitoring devices to understand the current market trends and user needs.

Materials

Choose materials that are comfortable to wear, washable, and have the ability to integrate sensors seamlessly for accurate data collection.

Concept Development

Brainstorm innovative ways to embed sensors into the fabric without compromising comfort or aesthetics. Consider how the data will be collected and transmitted for analysis.

Deliverables

  1. Concept sketches of the smart fabric design
  2. Detailed plan for sensor integration and data collection
  3. Prototype of the smart fabric with functioning sensors

Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be evaluated based on:
1. Innovation in sensor integration and data collection methods
2. Usability of the smart fabric for health monitoring purposes
3. Potential environmental impact of using sustainable materials
