Using the technique of weaving strips of cut fabric in a plain weave to create colourful carpets, to make pressure sensors. Instead of sandwitching the piezoresistive material with the conductors ontop and onbottom of the pressure application direction, this design sandwitches the piezoresistive material (stretchy Eeonyx, velostat or Stainless steel Nm10/3 yarn) with the conductors on either side. The pressure applied from above still has the same effect on the materials. The range is not very big because the initial pressure the weaving structure is already quite high. But still, it works quite consistently!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
