Will be given significant attention to those projects which reconsider wearables in an inventive and experimental way, re-evaluating interconnections between users, digital fabrication, environment and data.
The design approach must present a clear fabrication strategy, relying design solutions on digital fabrication tools available in a Fab Lab or Makerspace, as Reshape aims to merge both designing and making.
It is vital to consider economically feasible design and fabrication solutions, giving a reasonable estimation for the overall design proposal and its market ability.
