I’ve contacted 3M to get some samples of Velostat to use in my soft circuits. Many of the examples I have been viewing on http://www.instructables.com use this matierial and I’ll surely want to get my hands on some.

I’ve been experimenting with the conductive thread. I’ve sewin with it and gotten a current to pass through it to light an LED. (baby steps)


I have been waiting to receive a shipment of QT113 touch sensors. They just came in today, I plan on working with them throughout the week.

I have also gotten my hands on some static-resistant foam. Lynn mentioned that I can use it to build switches. When compressed, it becomes conductive! I’ll need to try that out too.
