“A photoresistor or light dependent resistor (LDR) or photocell is a resistor whose resistance decreases with increasing incident light intensity; in other words, it exhibits photoconductivity.” wikipedia I keep a large supply of these inexpensive sensors on hand. You can find them available at DigiKey.Read more ›
Both flowers are fully powered and functioning as planned! I am letting the Flowers sense their environment so I can test the batteries life span on ping. 1:54 and all systems on. I’ll be checking the LEDs brightness every 15 minutes. woop woop woop Red LEDs are hard to photograph! Green LEDs and Pink Petals are a great combination! I’ll […]Read more ›
I’ve been working on the interactive eTextile flowers that I will present at the Denver Art Museum Untitled event Friday 26 April. Inside this felted stamen I inserted a Maxbotix ultrasonic range finder This sensor will feed analog information to an ATtiny45. If the range is within two feet then the 10mm red LEDs will illuminate. If you are […]Read more ›
Lolwa Hassan Jamal made an eTextile lighthouse from conductive thread, ATtiny45 and a craft tech pressure sensor of conductive fabric and velostat. AWESOME! view on youtube By pressing on the light house door the user activates the LEDs to flicker. She made this three days after being introduced to an LED and 3V battery. I am so impressed!!
