‘Tools We Want’ are Imagined (and Real) Devices for #Wearables and Electronic Textiles #WearableWednesday
I’m loving ‘tools we want‘ and I’m sure you will too – it will likely inspire you to want to design and fabricate your own tools and solutions for all the projects you endeavor to build. Not every project has to be built with commercially bought tools – many you can make yourself!
The content of this website is the outcome of a collaboration between Irene Posch & Ebru Kurbak (Stitching Worlds) and Mika Satomi & Hannah Perner-Wilson (KOBAKANT). Starting in November 2014 and continuing indefinitely. The collaboration is motivated by a joint practice in electronic textiles (or textile electronics) and the desire to try and imagine, design and build functional tools for ourselves.
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.
