This DragonBoard™ 410c-based project covers the robotic mechanism of The Robot Dress, which can be thought of as a "smart crinoline".
The objective of the dress is to inspire people, especially kids, to realize engineering can be applied to anything and to break stereotypes of what engineering can be applied for. The function is to be entertaining by moving the skirt portion of the dress.
The actual dress portion is what goes over the mechanism and is not permanently fixed, so we hope to see more dresses over this mechanism.
There are a couple inspirations for this robotic dress. One is to inspire people to think of non-traditional applications of engineering. Another is to imagine how a wearable could aid with social anxiety. Since the robotic mechanism can be thought of as a "smart crinoline", we hope to see it under more dresses!
