felt capacitive proximity sensing

a qprox demo board is used to demonstrate proximity sensing with e-textiles

Dual Multitouch Pad with pressure

This controller demonstrates how most resistive touch screen systems can be modified to provide independent sensing of two positions on the surface. A single pressure measurement is also provided with a third sensing layer. A pair of SlideWide sensors (http://infusionsystems.com) are stuck to each other at right angles.

Pressure Sensing Illuminated Button Array

Illuminated button array music controllers have a long history. I was fortunate to meet the late great, Salvatore Martirano who pioneered the construction of large button array music synthesizers.

Tablo etextile fabric drape sensing controller

This controller with no direct antecedents is made by draping conductive stretchable fabric over a cereal bowl creating a curve related to the famous one called the witch [sic] of Agnesi. Resistive strips around the bowl are shorted out by the fabric and the varying resistances are measured and sent via USB to control software on a host computer.

Battery and Power Supplies you can Sew

A collection of power sources for e-textile and wearables projects.

Sewn, wearable, etextile, fabric multitouch

Piezoresistive fabric is sandwiched by sewn rows of vertical and horizontal pads using a basic sewing machine's custom embroidery pattern.

Embroidered Wireless Ball Inclinometer

This wireless variant of Hannah Perner Wilson's fabric tilt sensor uses embroidereded high electrical resistance thread . I designed the tool path to create a resistive track from the patches that can be used as a potential divider . This results in a more continuous estimate of the ball location than is suggsted by the six apparently-discrete patches.
