The MINI.MU gets kids crafting, coding and playing their own wearable instrument.
If you’re interested in interactive toys, smart accessories, or light-up fashions, this book is for you! Sew Electric is a set of hands-on LilyPad Arduino tutorials that bring together craft, electronics, and programming. The book walks you through the process of designing and...
These sewable badges are unbearrrrrably cute. Bearables is Pimoroni's range of woodland-themed wearable LED badges and sensors. String 'em with conductive thread to bring this DIY-meets-Disney badge to life!
This conductive material (also known as "Velostat" or "Linqstat") is a nice addition for your wearable/sensor hacking toolkit.
Conductive hook & loop tape is just like the stuff you've seen on jackets, clothes, shoes, and bags, but is coated with silver to make it fully conductive.
This soft potentiometer is an interesting way to add an adjustable resistor / slide potentiometer to your wearable. You can use it to adjust the brightness of an LED, or as a sensor input to your Flora or Gemma. When the ring slides up and down the ribbon, the resistance from ...
This conductive fiber is super interesting! It's great for felting and could also be spun into yarn if that's your thing.
Finally, the conductive material you've known you wanted but never knew you could have, its a sheet of flex PCB material! This is the stuff used to make flexible circuits, but raw and unetched. You can treat it just like 1 oz copper clad, etch it with ferric chloride (or other...
Measuring stretch forces isn't easy - unless you have some conductive rubber cord! This cord is 2mm diameter, and 1 meter long, made of carbon-black impregnated rubber. Usually this material is used for EMF gasketing, but its also very fun to play with.
This lightweight, flexible fabric ribbon channel contains four individual wires, perfect for wiring up wearables where flexibility is key.
When Bunnie showed up at Adafruit with the prototype for his Chibitronics Circuit Stickers we were all like "How on earth does that work?" and he was all like "Z-Axis tape - Its amazing!" And we agreed, so we decided to get some in our Materials section since its so cool.
