Hannah Perner-Wilson

Hannah Perner-Wilson (AT) is a designer and writes DIY instructions on wearable technology under the name Plusea.

Hannah combines conductive materials and craft techniques, developing new styles of building electronics that emphasize materiality and process. She received a BA in Industrial Design from the University for Art and Industrial Design Linz and an MA in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab, where she was a student in the High-Low Tech research group.

Hannah started exploring alternative human computer interaction concepts because she is upset with the way we currently interface with computation. By breaking technologies down to a basic level, she is able to develop her own interaction solutions and scenarios. She first started working with wearable technology during her studies and has since developed this practice, publishing DIY Instructables for individual solutions and fun ideas. Since working together with Mika Satomi on Massage me, both continue to collaborate on wearable technology projects under the name Kobakant. Kobakant believes in the spirit of humoring technology and maintaining a twisted criticism toward the stereotypes it creates.
