I’m curious about how material, craft and computing technology could come together to influence design.
The project presents an alternative and playful way for people to interact with a sensing textile via electronic support. My project uses conductive yarn and thread, which consists of a small amount of metal fibre that makes the material conductive. Through knitting or crochet, the yarns overlap and the metal fibre within the fabric is able to change its conductivity while being pressed or pulled. The differences of sensing abilities in each textile sensors are determined by the the level of skill that constructed them, and are suitable for different kinds of motion sensing. This forms a new way to control and interact with electronic objects, and reimagine how we use them.
