Hannah, aka Plusea, is something of a legend in the soft-circuits community. We have covered her open-source work in soft circuits and sensors many, many times before. She has no fewer than 37 tutorials published on Instructables, 28 of them “featured,” almost all of which cover low-cost soft-circuit devices of her own design. Now she is selling kits for a few of her more popular soft sensor inventions, none of which will set you back more than $15. Shown above is her Neoprene Bend Sensor Kit.
Knit stretch sensor. Pre-woven conductive and non-conductive yarn.
Neoprene Pressure Sensor/Matrix KIT. Neoprene, Velostat, conductive thread and stretch conductive fabric.
…currently a graduate student in the High-Low Tech research group lead by Leah Buechley at the MIT Media Lab. Her work explores material properties for their use in creating handmade human-computer interaction scenarios. Focusing on the documentation and development of available and affordable technology that allows more of us to DIY, modify and fix.
