Electronic textiles Jayce Pearl

Overview

Electronic textiles are a growing field within the fashion and STEM industries. As a STEM class at String Theory Highschool we're experimenting with said wearable eletrionics. We recently made bracelets that light up using felt, an LED light, and a circuit to complete the process.

Circuit Design

Above you can see my original circuit design. My battery and wiring was going to be off to the left side on the back of the bracelt. However the design changed, as seen below.

When it came time to actually make the bracelet I decided that the circuit I previusly designed wouldn't work because I didn't want the battery in the back. So I redesigned it to be in the front, on the right side. The LED light is up at the top and is easily connected to the battery.
