Shima Seiki, leading computerised knitting machine manufacturer based in Wakayama, Japan, has joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab (Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A) as a consortium lab member. With this collaboration, Shima Seiki seeks to explore next­generation technologies that open up new opportunities for the garment sector.

At the MIT Media Lab, the fusion of art and science as well as engineering and design are the basis for state-of-the-art research that leads the world in various fields. Meanwhile, the knit/apparel industry which Shima Seiki mainly serves, is itself based on that very same synthesis of design and technology.

As a member of the Media Lab, Shima Seiki aims to continue its innovation in the fashion apparel industry, and to better society in the future as it presses ahead with its corporate motto, ‘Ever Onward’. (GK)
