Location: LIWOLI 10, Kunstuniversitat Linz, Austria
Time: 15th April, 2010, 11-17h
In this workshop, we will construct textile sensors and circuitry from
Participants will be introduced to basic electronics and range of fabric sensor examples such as push, bend, tilt and stroke sensors. After understanding how it works, we will try to implement our own fabric sensor designs and connect to a simple LED fabric circuit on a T-shirt. The placement of sensors and circuitry will be designed considering interaction scenarios as well as aesthetic choice. The materials used are cheap and off the shelf, so that the practice introduced in the workshop can be continued at home.
Participants are asked to bring their own used T-shirt to the workshop.
We had Stretch and Soft and Safe Shielding Fabric NEW from LessEMF
We had Silver Plated Nylon 117/17 2ply, Silver Plated Nylon 234/34 4ply and Resistive thread 66 Yarn 22+3ply 110 PET
We had Nm 10/3 and Nm 50/2 from Schoeller
