Important terms to remember.

  • Circuit: a roughly circular line, route, or movement that starts and finishes at the same place.

  • Current: electrical conductor or space. It is measured as the net rate of flow of electric charge through a surface or into a control volume.

  • Electricity: is the set of physical phenomena associated with the presence and motion of matter that has a property of electric charge. Electricity is related to magnetism, both being part of the phenomenon of electromagnetism, as described by Maxwell's equations.

  • Electronic circuit: is composed of individual electronic components, such as resistors, transistors, capacitors, inductors and diodes, connected by conductive wires or traces through which electric current can flow.

  • Ground: In electrical engineering, ground or earth is a reference point in an electrical circuit from which voltages are measured, a common return path for electric current, or a direct physical connection to the Earth. Electrical circuits may be connected to ground for several reasons.

  • Power: ability to act or produce an effect.

  • Resistance: is an electrical quantity that measures how the device or material reduces the electric current flow through it. The resistance is measured in units of ohms (Ω). If we make an analogy to water flow in pipes, the resistance is bigger when the pipe is thinner, so the water flow is decreased.

Developed between January and March 2019 as my graduation project for Fabricademy, a new textile and technology academy. Stitch Synth consists of 10 modules, made out of textiles, conductive textiles, and electronic components, that snap together to generate simple electronic sounds. With soft, expressive interfaces that allow the user to control the sound through touch, Stitch Synth explores how we interact with electronics, and how the musical instruments of the future might look. All circuitry in Stitch Synth is exposed and incorporated into the design, making the electronics visible rather than hiding it in a black box. Motivated in part by the optimistic and geometric design of the ‘Space Age’, and by a desire to make electronics more accessible¨

The Multimeter

A multimeter or a multitester, also known as a volt/ohm meter or VOM, is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several measurement functions in one unit. A typical multimeter may include features such as the ability to measure voltage, current and resistance.:

  • Voltage, alternating and direct, in volts.
  • Current, alternating and direct, in amperes.
  • Resistance in ohms.

Process and workflow

Simple visual explanation on how to prepare for the digital sensor which you´ll see functioning in the video/gif below in two formats sensor 1 sensor 2:

footnote fabrication files

Fabrication files are a necessary element for evaluation. You can add the fabrication files at the bottom of the page and simply link them as a footnote. This was your work stays organised and files will be all together at the bottom of the page. Footnotes are created using [ ^ 1 ] (without spaces, and referenced as you see at the last chapter of this page) You can reference the fabrication files to multiple places on your page as you see for footnote nr. 2 also present in the Gallery.

Code Example

Use the three backticks to separate code.

// the setup function runs once when you press reset or power the board
void setup() {
  // initialize digital pin LED_BUILTIN as an output.

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() {
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);   // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);    // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second
