Textilo – Noisy Socks


We made a Textilo!


You can follow the essential steps to create a textilo:

First we laser cut this circuit on conductive fabric that we sticked to a regular fabric (the black one).IMG_5557

Then, we soldered the circuit with the different components: the generator, the speaker and the soft sensor that we made last session (I personally made a new one that you can see bellow).

Here’s my new sensor that’s more adapted to the socks I’m making because of its form.

With those crocodiles we’re able to check if our circuit is working.IMG_5665 IMG_5684

And it is working!!!!

(I decided to glue the textilo for security reasons, you’re not forced to)

Then I started sewing the whole circuit to my socket. I created two pockets: one to put the generator, and the other for the speaker. I decided to keep the textilo apparent for esthetic reasons (I like the colors and the shape of it). I could always cover it with fabric if I wanted to.

I’m now wearing this socket that make noise when you press on the floor.
