These three eTextile circuits use the same hardware to create a light sensing circuit. The first two example uses seed beads to insulate the conductive thread and add an aesthetic twist to standard electronic hardware. While the final circuit uses electrical tape, conductive paint, conductive thread, conductive tape, and a lot of ingenuity to connect the […]Read more ›

The Brother ScanNCut uses a separate pen holder with specific sized felt tip ink pens to draw your designs. I want to plot electronic traces, but Brother doesn’t manufacture conductive ink pen cartridges so Denis and I began to hack together a solution. First we took apart an existing pen holder and cleaned both the felt tip and […]Read more ›
While at PIF Camp in Trenta Slovenia we tested the Brother ScanNCut with Statex conductive fabric to make eTextile speakers. Denis began the project by drawing samples of the coils on his computer. Next we fused an iron on adhesive, Pellon Heat Bond, to one side of the conductive fabric. Scanning the coil samples into the […]Read more ›
Always test your tools for continuity before placing them in your tool box. A faulty tool will lead to time wasted with your prototyping. To test your tools – Set your multimeter to the audible continuity setting and touch both ends of your alligator clips and jumper wires.Read more ›
