PIF Camp 3-9 August 2015
Trenta Valley Slovenia
Using traditional crafting techniques of embroidery, lace making, and sewing, we will adapt conductive fabrics, threads, and paints to transform electronic hardware into soft circuits and eTextiles. During PIF Camp we will collaborate with the other nodes to replicate their computer circuitry into functional electronic textiles and thru this process gain a greater understanding of how electronic hardware is manufactured and how to manipulate these systems into eTextiles. By exploring alternative methods of manufacturing sensors and PCBs we hope to introduce additional tools to PIF Camp’s varied electronic systems and expand our electronic component materials and methods.
