This isn’t a circuit board attached to knitting, it’s a fabric circuit board made from knitting. Researchers carried copper thread along with yarn to create a textile that is not just wearable and washable, but that has been proven to continue working when shot with a bullet. Yep, they conducted tests to prove that the functionality of their smart fabric wasn’t affected by being shot. The video touches on the implications for use in dangerous situations, and I love imagining what it was like for the creators to take their knitted electronics to the shooting range for testing.
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.
