Possible fashion trend for 2009: Circuit bent clothes??!?

October 14th, 2008

I found this during my random internet excursion:

Conductive fabric

Now what is that? Conductive fabric, which enables you to detect when your hand is near a certain of the fabric. The orange piece of fabric works as a ground plane, and the gold coloured patterns are used to detect capacitance. When you hold your hand near a certain area, the capacitance goes up which can be detected by the microchip on the breadboard.
So, what about using this for wearable circuit bent toys? Just a random thought, and you’d have to make sure the bent toy doesn’t catch fire. Here’s a post on theme wearable audio. (From the exhibition Electroacoustic Sculptures by Benoît Maubrey)

Some other random posts from that blog:
