Craft & Design Technology Wearables
Massive “Wearables + Soft Computing” resources list

Artist, teacher, technologist Christopher T. Palmer, aka “CTP,” was asking recently on the ThingM Sketching list, for suggestions of resources for a class he’s going to be teaching on “Active Wearable Objects.” He started to get a bunch of great input and so I asked him to compile it and share it with you all. But somebody has already done the heavy lifting for him. CTP sent me the URL to this huge resource list, maintained by Margarita Benitez, of hardware, materials, supplies, software, tutorials, and more, related to high-tech wearables and soft circuits. Thanks for this, CTP! Now you’re off the hook. The only drawback to this list is that it’s over a year old (tho most of the links are still active). Hopefully Margarita will update it soon.

  1. No worries, Margarita. I can delete one.

    Thanks for posting and thanks for the list! Are you on the Sketching list? I think folks there have been sharing a lot of their favorite soft circuit resources.

  2. :) Thanks Gareth!
    I attempted looking for it a couple of times and couldn’t find an email for the list on the website. I only found the one for the rsvp. I’d love to be on it as I’ve heard really good things about the sketching events from my colleagues. If you know how that would be possible to make happen I would be extremely grateful!

  3. One of my favorite eTextile resource lists is:


    Adrian Freed at Berkley has a hands on eTextile resource library that he brings to Maker Faire San Mateo. Be sure to find him!

    see y’all in May!
