Attaching a soft pressure sensor (with a vibration motor) using an embroidery machine
The eCrafts Collective is an initiative by Kati Hyyppä and I. We work in collaboration with different crafters, makers and experts of various fields – in the quest for fascinating, unexpected and delightful combinations of traditional crafts and electronics.
‘Soft Radio’ is a crocheted spherical device that fits in the palm of your hand. It is soft to hold and has a texture of any regular crocheted textile. The materials used include simple electronic components, conductive yarns and regular wool.
This mushroom-like sensor was an exploration for creating soft sound-making interfaces for a project called “Electronic Digital Music Practice for Neurodiverse people” at Aalto ARTS.
Crocheted Stylus are made by crocheting normal yarn and conductive yarn.
