Sewing the Stretch Sensor

Sewing the Stretch Sensor

I have been trying to figure out how to best connect the stretch sensors to fabric. What I did before was simply using relatively thick multi-strand cables and attaching the stretch sensor using pressure fitting. I would then just sew the multi-strand cable to the fabric.

However, the rigid plastic parts required for the pressure fitting do not especially appeal to …..

I procrastinate productivly: I should have been doing other university stuff, instead I thought… “can I use my set-up as a mouse?”

Well, I gave it a shot. I’ll coment more on it later.

Introducing: The ShadowCoat (Part 2)

As mentioned before,  I have changed my approach a bit, dropping the thermoplastics and going more towards smart clothing direction. I suggest you just take a look at the video. I’ll post some pictures and explanations below.

What is most noteworthy in the video is that the rotation of the arm does the two sensor thing I’ve been talking about (cant …..

A guy who goes by the name of cr0sh on the Arduino Forums, who has been giving me all kinds of interesting suggestions, wrote a comment on thermoplastics. I will just copy paste it over here, in case anyone who has been following what I am doing is interested.

Personally, while the stuff *is* amazing, I am quite happy to announce, …..

Introducing: The ShadowCoat

I havent updated here in a while. I have sort of important news though (well, in a way)

I have decided to call my input device ShadowCoat because well, it copies your moves, like a shadow… and your can wear it, like a coat

Oh, and for those of you who are thinking… “this thing is wearable, but no where …..
