Sunday 1st - Sunday 8th December 2002

WEAR ME!!! Future Physical's first Network Exchange took place between 1st and 8th December 2002, and explored all aspects of Wearable Computing and Smart Textiles.

WEAR ME!!! brought the txOom PlaySpace by international art/science collective FoAm to the Circus Space Hippodrome, Great Yarmouth from 1st - 8th December 2002.

Inside txOom, participants (from aged 5 years upwards) could take a journey into the media worlds of 'textiles in bloom' through wearing garments using body sensing technologies and active fabrics.
