The blossoming research field of computational textiles, electronic textiles or e-textiles integrates computation with fabric; e-textile researchers weave, solder and sew electronics into cloth to build soft, flexible and washable computational devices. E-textiles is a young discipline, and developments in the field have been relegated almost exclusively to research labs in industry and academia.In addition to being accessible, the materials that make up the electronic sewing kit are safe and easy to work with. ... safety and accessibility advantages that electronic sewing kits do, but what is built on a breadboard is always temporary; andanbsp;...
