Wearable Week9-10 | From prototyping to production

April.17 Problem: Those pads are designed for operation at about 5v. At that voltage, each one will draw about 1A. At 12v, each one will try to draw about…

Wearable Week8 | Sensor, flora, battery

Getting stuck on pattern design, so i started working on sensor and flora this week. This is the first time I make circuit without breadboard. Components: Flora,3.7v 2500mAh Lipo battery, air…

Wearable Week7 | Heatingpad & thermochromic pigment

Test1 heating pad I ordered some heating pads from adafruit and test them on the fabric. Connecting with 5V power,  heating pads’ temperature was just right for color changing…

Wearable spring break | Test & Fabrication

Mar.20 –  test1 – test2 : add fabric medium into acrylic paint Result :Fabric medium could dilute acrylic fabric paints without changing their color; make painted fabric soft…

Wearable Week4 | Update Update

1.First test with thermochromic fabric   2. Second test with Arduino Uno, air quality sensor and thermochromic fabric.   3. Third test with Flora, air quality sensor and thermochromic fabric. No video, burnt my…

Wearable Week3 | Update

1. What is the purpose of the artifact you are designing? A jacket that alerts people of severe air pollution. It could change color in response to the level of the…

Wearable Tech Week2 | Project idea

Material In this project, I’m going to make a coat made of color changing fabric (thermochromic fabric) or thermochromic ink. This fabric  could change color in response to temperature. Requirement The…
