When I receive a new ‘conductive thread’ I first test for continuity and then resistance. Set your multimeter to the continuity setting, I prefer multimeters with an audible setting. Then place the two probes along the material to be tested. In general, if the multimeter makes a beeping sound then the material demonstrates continuity and will work […]Read more ›
Saturday 4 May 2013 Matt Pinner, from crashSpace, and I hosted an eTextile workshop at the Los Angeles Makerspace. About 18 people came to learn about conductive thread, copper foil tape and Bare Conductive Paint to create eTextiles and paper computing. We began with the basic LED circuit that I use for all my classes.The two hours flew by as […]Read more ›
A year ago, way back in March 2012, I was testing a circuit using Arduino to program aan ATtiny45 for a dress inspired by Star Trek. Y’all remember the 3rd season “Is There in Truth no Beauty?” episode yes? I had the circuit working and wrote the program down someplace safe because I would need to replicate it for sample […]Read more ›
