Drawdio in a Puppet

I love the Drawdio and have been meaning to buy one to play with for quite some time. Well, this weekend I finally got one in the mail and immediately started to brainstorm how to incorporate it into soft circuit projects. I ended up soldering some snaps to the board's contacts so I could easily put it in some prototypes. Here is one I made last night, a jellyfish-like puppet that you wear on your hand and 'play' like an instrument by… Continue

Temperature Sensing Coffee/Tea Sleeve

Right now I am challenging myself to make a soft circuit project every weekend and this week's project was a coffee sleeve with LEDs and a temperature sensor from Aniomagic. It was inspired by their tutorial on 'smart coaster' and translated from plastic/wired to a fleece and soft version.

Above is a pic of the finished sleeve - the LEDs… Continue
