|A real-life Hooper Hero! [message #76674] Sun, 13 October 2013 23:44 UTC
In case anyone had any doubt about the flexibility of 3D printed materials when used for clothing, I've got a delightful little snippet of video from this past weekends NY Comic Con. I created this performance outfit for Veronica last year, and it has been used in a number of performances. It's 2mm thick to retain flexibility, and snaps together with printed-in fasteners that act as hinges to permit extreme flexibility.|
Many people think of Hula-hooping as basically standing there as a hoop goes around you, but this clip might change that perception- the movements are fast and extreme. The design holds up very well, and it's very comfortable.
YouTube videos can't be embedded in this forum, but the video is here:
