Week8: Making your won circuit


This week, we make our own PCB design. Lucas Bahle will be showing you how to design PCB on fritzing software and convert it to the file so that CNC milling machine can read it, and we will mill our first PCB! Please download fritzing software from PCB is a short name for Printed […]

Week6: Textile embedded electronics


This week’s theme: This week, we look into weaving technique as an example method to integrate electronics into materials. You can embed: – conductive thread to embed LED or other types of connections – conductive thread for heating element – EL wire – resistive thread/ yarn to make sensors You can also try knitting, paper […]

Make your own MakeyMakey

“Makey Makey is a nice and fun Open Hardware project, developed by Mit researchers Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum. It’s an Arduino based project that could get started through crowdfunding. Basically you can turn any conductive surface into a sensor: bananas and other fruit/vegetables, cutlery, water, metal tools, conductive dough, human skin…When you connect to […]
