Plushie : An Interactive Design System for Plush Toys

Yuki Mori and Takeo Igarashi

Amelie is back out there with her obsession with toys and cute things, somehow related to the very serious matter of the future of textiles... SPOTTED : the future of crafted toys and one of its experimental lab in Japan... My future next big trip :)

Thanks to this experimental programme, the user can interactively designs a stuffed animal's model by sketching. The system automatically generates the corresponding 2D cloth pattern you have to use to make a 3D stitched shape to stuff.

This is soooo coooool !!!

Although for now it only works on PC (tsssss...)

This is a PhD research project by Yuki Igarashi
at Fine Digital Engineering Laboratory
Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST)
Graduate School of Engineering
The University of Tokyo
click on the video for a short demonstration of how this works
