Interactive Light Object with Woven Cashmere Switch

The  idea was to create a soft switch made of textile. As long as your hand lies on the woven switch a connection is made. By taking the hand away the connection comes to a halt.

Here a video demonstrating the process:


The light object consists of four LED that slowly charge while two switches are simultaneously pressed. If the connections are interrupted the LEDs fade away. If the switches are pressed long enough for the LEDs brightness value to rise to its limit, after releasing the switches the LEDs go out in a flash.

Here a video demonstrating the process with two pressure switches instead of the woven cashmere switch (because I only have two hands, and i had to hold the camera somehow ).


The code for the sequence:
