As I continue my exploration with e-textiles and fabric based inputs, I ran across a problem when trying to prototype some wearable buttons I had made. I needed a way to connect the conductive fabric to a prototyping board so that I could make it more rigid and “wearable”. I tried soldering the fabric to […]

In the last few months I have been working on designing new methods for inputs on wearable e-textiles. The original “fabric button” consisted of two pads made from conductive fabric that would make contact and act as a standard button. While this design does seem to be fairly accurate and simple to build, it is […]

Multiple Motor Control w/ Arduino w/o any IC chips

On March 16, 2011, in Blog, Electronics, by Vlad Cazan

For one portion of my Kinect hacking project I would like to create a row of fans that can be turned on and off with your hand. When a user moves around the room, the fans that are closest to the user will turn on and when the user moves away the fans stop. I […]
