I purchased these push button switches from czb6721960 shop on eBay. 50 blue and white 8mm x 8mm locking square buttons $2.63 item #160994703230 100 black 6mm x 6mm x 5mm 4-pin DIP push button switches $1.59 item #140942027356 And a view of the two switches side by side […]Read more ›
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 ›
“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 ›
