Responsive Textile

Created on 12 Oct 2019

Responsive visual experiences in clothing

Using sewable arduino and capacitive thread we can create a new kind of clothing that responds to the wearer. The project will use Arduino lilypads to integrate sensors like temperature and UV to create displays and interface with the wearer's electronics. With conductive thread, the wearer can be wired up and taking in data from themself and the environment without any bulk or awkward appearance. Wish List:
