E-Textile Wristband by: alexis piscitelli

Overview:

Create an E-Textile Wristband that turns an LED light on using a circuit design, a battery, and conductive thread.

Materials:

  • Battery Holder
  • 3 Volt Battery
  • Conductive Thread
  • LED light(s)
  • Buttons
  • Felt

Initial Circuit Design

This is the initial circuit design. The initial circuit design we were to create only had one LED light. The conductive thread is connecting the negative side of the LED light to the negative side of the battery holder. The conductive thread is connecting the positive side of the LED light to the positive side of the battery holder.

Modified Circuit Design

This is the modified circuit design that includes the second LED light. With two LED lights, you have to see where you're going to sew the conductive thread so that it doesn't create a short circuit. I decided to connect the second LED light to the first LED light so they were very close in distance so it wouldn't overlap onto the conductive thread that connects the battery holder.

Wristband Lighting Up

Tips

  • Plan out your circuit design beforehand.
  • Come up with where you would like your LED lights and battery holder to sit.
  • Try to pan out where your conductive thread is going to go.
  • If you notice that your LED light doesn't light up when your turn your battery on, check to make sure the negative part of your conductive thread isn't touching your positive part of your conductive thread.
