I am a junior pursuing a Creative Technologies degree with an Entrepreneurship & Innovation minor.

E-broidery


For this lab, we started by creating designs to mimic a linear potentiometer, a rotary potentiometer, and a joystick as 2D images. Then we turned these images into embroidery files and stitched them using conductive thread to create circuit swatches.

Embedded Circuit Pillow


We started this lab by creating our own PCB's that are designed to be sewn into fabric. My project using these is a pillow with 7 capacitive touch boards and a piezo buzzer that plays a different tone based on which berry you are touching.

Thermochromics and Heat-Resistive Fabrics


We created thermochromic paint that can be applied to various materials and when current is passed through it, the paint changes color. Through a matrix of these panels & a program to change the polarity on peltier coolers to see the effect.

Kimono


For my final project, I made a kimono using a pattern online, machine embroidering flowers & leaves, and sewing in wearable PCBs to create a color-changing NeoPixel kimono.

Don't Stand So Close To Me


This hand-held device uses an Ultra-sonic range finder, LCD screen, 2 Neopixels, and 2 buttons, to measure 6ft. If you are within 3 inches either direction of 6ft the green NeoPixel will turn on, if not it will turn red. It also shows the measurement.

Piano Trainer


For my CSC 235 project, I wanted to combine the things I learned in the CRT 498 class with conductive thread into a controller for a game. The piano trainer allows you to learn to play a song in processing on a capacitive touch piano connected to Arduino.
