Project of the Week: Interactive T-Shirt

January 19, 2015


ValentinaC  designed an interactive monster-themed t-shirt for a workshop she was hosting to teach kids about the connection between design and technology. The project uses Bare Conductive’s electric paint and littleBits to make a T-shirt that reacts to touch. Inspired by the touch sensor module (coming soon!), a Bitlab graduate by Bare Conductive slated to launch later this year, Valentina made her own DIY version for the workshop.


The circuit uses the DIY touch sensor to connect to conductive paint on the T-shirt, plus 2 long LEDs for the monster’s eyes, and a vibration motor for the tongue. For an in-depth tutorial, check out Valentina’s detailed instructions and get your wearables on!
