Soft & Squishy Sensing Switches Workshop

2023-03-13 @ 14:00 - 17:00

We are happy to invite everyone to join us for the first workshop in the Soft & Squishy Sensing Switches series: Fabric pressure sensors and soft switches workshop, with lee wilkens & Alex Bachmayer.

When? Monday, March 13th 2:00 – 5:00 pm

Where? MilieuxMake Space (EV-10.825)
In this workshop you will learn how to use e-textiles to make soft fabric-based switches and pressure sensors. We will demonstrate techniques on how to layer conductive fabric and velostat to create components that respond to a push, press, squish, or bump using a pre-programmed Gemma microcontroller.

*No experience required, but spaces are limited.**Please RSVP to Marc Beaulieu (marc.beaulieu@concordia.ca) with ‘Soft Switches Workshop’ in the subject line. Be sure to include your name, ID and research cluster if applicable.
