In this paper, we propose a method for creating a Kinetic Clothes with a scalable shape-changing interface. The Kinetic Clothes is a clothes which is composed of a deformable garment and changes its shape along wearer’s biometric information. Many of the conventional Kinetic Clothes are composed of motors and shape memory alloys. Then their systems are difficult for fashion designers to implement from the beginning since it requires wide range of knowledge in engineering. Therefore, we tried to adopt a scalable shape changing interface and propose a toolkit system to create Kinetic Clothes with the interface. With the toolkit, the user who does not have an experience in engineering can create the Kinetic Clothes. The detail of the created Kinetic Clothes and the workshop with the toolkit are described in the paper.
