Hello all you awesome people,
My name is Ciara and I have recently joined the content team.
I am very excited to be working on some brand new resources introducing the concept of wearable technology. Nowadays there’s a whole range of electronic gear available specially designed to be sewn into textiles, right down to conductive thread (my personal favourite).
I’ve been having great fun playing with LEDs and discovering all the possibilities for creating electronic projects that are both wearable and washable.
Are you interested in wearables? If you’ve tried out any projects with this cool technology I’d love to hear about them!
Check out @Ciara-McHugh’s 1st Sushi Card release, showing young people how they can get started with wearables by creating a light up badge!
@Guillaume-Feliciano I was impressed too!
I would definitely recommend Dojos printing them double-sided and laminating them so they can conserve paper and use them again and again.
I had a lot of fun playing around with the batteries, conductive thread & LEDs making this guy!
Thanks @Guillaume-Feliciano ! 🤓
I love @Nuala-Nic-Éil 's robot, he is just the cutest ❤️. Can’t wait to see what will be created by others using the Sushi Cards. One of the things I love about this technology is how big a part imagination plays, and seeing all the different things people come up with.
Feel free to post photos here sharing your results!
