Knit Sensor

Knit sensor

As part of my exploration of e-textiles, I created knit and felted pressure and stretch sensors. Created from wool yarn and conductive thread, these soft sensors helped bridge the gap between the electronic and the organic in my pillow alarm clock and personable chair projects at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. I'm planning to further explore their potential use as part of step-sensing dance shoes or food-sensing placemats.
