In the Spring issue of Hue, Assistant Professor Sean Cormier shows off FIT’s state-of-the-art textile-testing lab. Manufacturers of clothing and other textiles subject each item to rigorous testing, to make sure it doesn’t tear too easily or wrinkle too much or burn too fast or fade too strongly in the laundry or rub off on an unsuspecting sofa… you get the point.
The pictures tell the story pretty nicely, in Hue’s humble (and insanely biased) opinion, but if a picture is worth a thousand words, then this video of the testing lab’s machines in action, at 24 frames per second, is worth almost 2 million words. That’s almost twice as long as the longest novel in history, In Search of Lost Time. You’d be a fool not to watch.embedded by Embedded Video
