Inspired by the availability of Zebra fabric and the fact that Eeonyx can coat a variety of materials in their secret resistive/piezoresistive formula, this post is about an idea for a fabric, that will hopefully “come true”.
The idea is that, by coating the Zebra stripes in Eeonyx’s carbon polymer, the contact between the highly conductive material (silver plated nylon thread) and the resistive/piezoresistive material (Eeonyx) is made. The conductive zebra strips become the sensor leads, bringing the sensor data to the edge of the material – or can be picked up anywhere along the way.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
