Digital Day Camp 2005 (DDC05) focused on the significance and history of the uniform in US culture. Students studied the fundamentals of fashion and design, including the politics surrounding the implementation of various uniforms. In addition, student participants learned basic circuitry and physical computing via workshops with different artists investigating the use of wearable technologies. Participants learned to create and incorporate such components as light and sound sensors, LED tags and switches into the uniforms that, as teams, they were challenged to prototype. DDC 2005 concluded with a fashion show and exhibition of the uniforms developed during the 3 weeks of the program.

Robot Clothes will be teaching Pocket Workshops to high school students as part of Eyebeam's Digital Day Camp program. This year's theme is wearables.  They will teach the basics of wearable computing materials(conductive fabrics, thread, and fasteners) through the fabrication and assembly of a robotic pocket that crawls on clothing.  Robot Clothes will lead a more advanced workshop for adults on the second day of the event as part of the Summer School at Eyebeam program.
