Master Thesis

My thesis (PDF) from 2012 is about developing a wearable sensor network called LumiNet2 under the supervision of René Bohne.

I also started documenting my experiments on the Wearable computing at i10 page in the tutorials section. I also helped organizing a workshop for fashion designers Smart Fashion Aachen.

I recently completed a collaboration with ITA to create a jacket with an 8x8 RGB LED display on the back.


During my stay in the FabLab Aachen I learned many things including how to operate the PCB Milling Machine the Lasercutter and the Professional 3D Printer Dimension Elite. I also wrote an extensive tutorial for the Milling machine.

I am interested in all that is related to crafts and I also like tinkering with electronics so I participate at Dorkbot Aachen regularly. Sometimes I bring my wearable projects other times something completely different.

Fun projects:

  • LED on nails

  • Nail QR codes.

  • QR code Stamp

  • Laser cut silk screen stencil for fabrics.

  • Fabric Connectors

  • Greeting cards with Lasercuter

  • Skirt with 8x8 green led matrix

  • Fimo electronics

  • Laser cut origami shapes.

  • Conductive play-dough

  • Resistors earnings
