Needle User Interface records and shares your needlework progress

Ken Nakagaki’s project the Needle User Interface is a sewing interface using layered conductive fabrics. It allows the sewer to record and share their progress with other users.

The activity “Sewing” has been supporting our life in various scenes such as needlework, embroidery or surgery. However, the opportunities to sew by our hands have been decreased because of the development of technology such as sewing machines. In this research, we would propose the interface that entertain the monotonous and boring work, or support the delicate and difficult work by enhancing sewing by hands. The state of how a needle is stung can be detected by structure of conductive textiles in layers. By detecting the state, how the string was sewed on a textile surface can be estimated.

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.
