Open Softwear is a book about fashion and technology. More precisely it is a book about Arduino boards,
conductive fabric, resistive thread, soft buttons, LEDs, and some other things. We started researching five years
ago thanks to the support of K3, School of Arts and Communication, Malmö University, Sweden.
Authors T. Olsson, D. Gaetano, J. Odhner, and S. Wiklund got the chance to come together to write down their
conclusions in the form of an illustrated book aiming at students and professionals trying to enter the field of
physical computing from the softwear perspective.
Open Softwear is a book for beginners looking into wearable computing or into fashion and technology. Its 104
pages are an opening for courses and workshops in the field. The original document was downloaded over
14.000 times from this website what brought us to make a revised edition in print
