Make-Your-Own Vibrator Workshop (with Touchy-Feely Tech)

Make-Your-Own Vibrator Workshop (with Touchy-Feely Tech) 1

Introducing “Make-Your-Own vibrator workshop” with Touchy-Feely Tech, part of a series of mini-School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe courses we’ve put together to help get you started!

The workshop, held in english, is designed to introduce you to the basics of electronics, coding and customizable pleasure.

During this workshop you will build your own functioning vibrator, while getting hands-on with the basics of electronics in the process. You will explore how to make simple changes to the internal and external parts to create a customised and safe-to-use end result. Finally, you will learn to hack your vibrator with an Arduino microcontroller, learning how hardware and software can be brought together to enhance the purpose and functionality of our intimate electronic possessions.

The workshop will be led by Alice Stewart and Dani Clode who form Touchy-Feely Tech, a creative technology studio working at the intersection of electronic hardware, art and education.
