Latest from Family Circuit: Super Simple Touch Screen Gloves!

Do not buy those touch sensitive gloves! They’re way expensive to buy, but cheap and easy to make yourself. Here’s a tutorial from Family Circuit, the web series from yours truly. These gloves work because they extended the conductivity, or capacitance, of your skin to the screen so it’s just like your finger is touching […]

Learning how to construct your own sensors is one of the coolest things ever. The soft circuit and e-textile movement become a big force in the Maker movement, gaining traction as an entry point for more populations to engage technology. Constructing these sensors is not difficult and fairly cheap. Once you gain a basic understanding […]
