After playing around with Freetouch to make a knitted fabric switch, it was found that the sensor reading varied depending on the type of interactions. For example, prodding the fabric resulted in a much lower sensor reading than grabbing the fabric. Based on this observation, I played around with how to use Freetouch and knitted e-textiles to make a gesture sensing e-textile based on capacitive sensing.
This project is designed to be guidance for making your own gesture sensing e-textiles, based on what I found to work, and not work so well.”
