The MIL is located in Upper Austria, at the Campus of the University of Applied Science in Hagenberg. The research lab is focusing on textile interfaces research and TextileUX. TextileUX proposes the creation of multifunctional and textile-based sensing systems and aim at seamless embedding of computational environments. It operate on the interface of material, textile and computer science.
The research areas incorporates the design aspects of textile interfaces, textile-embedded sensors that react to pressure, technical yarns and applied prototypes.
The MIL is partnering with the Fashion and Technology department of University of Linz (UFG), a partner of Re-FREAM.
