I like to use a non-woven conductive fabric because the edges don’t fray when cut with a scissor. Woven rip stop fabric will fray even when using pinking shears. Non-woven conductive fabric has a nice texture and does not fray. The frayed edges of a woven conductive fabric can be used as conductive fringe. Every eTextile project has its own […]Read more ›
Using velostat and a non-woven conductive fabric you can craft a simple pressure sensor for wearable computing and eTextile projects. Use the velostat as a semi-permiable layer between two pieces of conductive fabric to create an interactive switch. Insert this basic pressure switch along either the negative or the positive trace then push it to complete the […]Read more ›
This is a force-sensitive resistor available from Adafruit for $7.00 USD. Thru hole connections make this pressure sensor easy to adapt for eTextile use. The sensor pad can be embedded into a textile or paper computing design. You can also use conductive fabric and velostat to make your own pressure sensor. Just follow my video […]Read more ›
