eTextiles with the Edison

eTextiles are made using techniques and materials that make it so electrical components can be embedded and integrated into fabric. It’s an essential part of wearable technology and a perfect way for crafty people to dive into electronics and vice versa. These projects can be made with any microcontroller that has WiFi capabilities and can be programmed with JavaScript.

This Instructable will go over how to setup up your Edison and gives you 3 projects to choose from. Three different eTextile mediums are introduced:

  • conductive thread
  • conductive paint
  • conductive yarn

All three projects use the Intel Edison and take advantage of it’s capability for wireless communication. Before going off on a project adventure, take a look at the next step for setting up the Edison.
