NEW GUIDE: Experimenting with Conductive Heater Fabric.

This is a non-woven conductive fabric that feels a bit like thick paper or thin craft foam. With an electrical resistance of 20 ohms/square inch, it will heat up when current is applied. It is lightweight, very flexible, and can be easily cut with regular scissors. Perfect for wearables!

For full technical information and specifications, check out the product page. In this
guide we’ll look at some ways to connect to the fabric, how to control it with code, and some ideas for projects.

Because you will be working with heat and more experimental circuitry, this type of project is best suited for intermediate makers. Before working with this material, you should be comfortable with basic electronics concepts and safety.

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.
