School of Wicked Fabrics – Making Textile Sensors @kobakant #Wearables

Textile Sensors

Over at KOBAKANT’s How to Get What You Want, they have a great number of interesting DIY projects. A workshop on making Textile/Fabric Sensors caught our eye (as nearly everyone is making wearable projects these days). They write:

One can make different types of sensors. Some sensors have two states, “on” or “off”, or another words, “contact” or “no contact” like on/off switches of a light. Other sensors have range of states, like a dimmer of a light. The two state kind of sensors are digital sensors, and the sensors that has range is called analog sensors. We can build these sensors and read the resistance change with multimeter.

They show you how to make a fabric contact sensor, a resistive sensor, a pressure sensor and a voltage divider. Well worth checking out.

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.
