Interactive fluff with multifunctionalities.

This project resulted from the partnership between the company Mundotêxtil and Fibrenamics - University of Minho, involving the use of patchwork concepts, multi-functionality, and interactivity.

The project consisted of the development of processing techniques for terry production, particularly in what concerns to the combination of structures with novel functional materials such as conductive materials, and the simultaneous incorporation of functionalities by integrating microelectronic devices.

Thus, it aimed the development of terry structures for stimulation, comfort and children protection.
Therefore, products for three levels of interactivity have been developed, which includes:
● Low interactivity – requires visual modification of patterns, colors or shapes in structures of a product, such as color changing properties;
● Average interactivity – assumes that the product contains several interactive properties in a single product;
● High interactivity – assumes that the product is a game that stimulates the child’s cognitive system.
All products are based on terry fabrics and their current applications are intended to introduce new features into existing products and thus develop new uses for these fibrous structures.

The MULTITERRY project (NSRF Project No. 2013/33935), sponsored by Mundotêxtil, (Portugal), was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) through the National Strategic Reference Framework (QREN).
