testing the conductive thread. it’s conductive, hurrah

I left the hoop on to stabilise it a bit whilst I had it connected to the computer. it’s the tutorial on adafruit site, though I modified their circuit pattern into the circles & didn’t have the clips to test it. checked it with my multimetre instead after stitching. one thing to remember is once the usb cable’s connected it tends to flip the fabric. I need to play more & see if it really is now ‘programmed’ (I think so) ie will it run without the computer if I power it by battery/something else. but yeah, no soldering, only stitching. have to think of something else besides leds now – they seem to be the “hello world” of wearable tech

 

it’s an adafruit flora processor + neo pixel v2 led & conductive thread. I bought some other things like a light/colour detector & flexible solar panel & more leds. will think of something to try them out
