Interactive textile

Project: Tangible

Interactive textile (Work in Progress)

This project is inspired by Google's project Jacquard (I will discuss my privacy concerns regarding Google's decision to make the future of the project and IoT dependent on Google Cloud another time).

The goal of my experiment was to find out how conductive yarn can be used to integrate a touch interface into clothing or textile. My project is unfortunately still in progress, but there is already a first promising prototype.

As a next step I want to integrate a touch interface in a sofa instead of a shirt to use it as a remote control for the TV and lights.
