eTextile Multi-Touchpad

Music / Fasion Tech - Physical Computing

How It Was Created.











The intention behind the research and development of an eTextile Multi-Touchpad is to see if it is a good sensor to integrate in a Body Suit.

I was able to generate sounds by touching / tapping / pressing each one of the touchpads.

View images below to see how the Paper Touchpad was made.

Tools: Arduino & openFrameworks

Challenge: Drum sounds created noise whereas the synth wav worked beautifully.

Fixed ! with an ‘if’ statement in openFrameworks, saying that ‘if the value is smaller then the current threshold && bigger then the previous && the current file is loaded, do not play !














I learned how to make a multi-touch sensor from attending a workshop by KOBAKANT and vvvv.
