Cats who teach soldering, instant parties, & machine-sewable LEDs? A pay-what-you-wish project talk from creative technologist Steph Piper.
Mixing electronics with art is an exciting area with a lot of potential. If done well, it can make even simple projects look like magic to inspire others. Hear about three example projects in this space, including making multicolour circuit boards, building the Party Button, a 2m tall interactive art piece and GlowStitch LEDs, a new product for machine sewing LEDs for wearable tech projects. Get an idea of the workflow involved in creating your own art circuit boards with open software in KiCAD and Inkscape. This talk will break down what went into each project, where things went wrong and where things went above and beyond. There will also be a sneak peek into the upcoming crowdfunding campaign for GlowStitch LEDs: The most versatile way to add lights to crafting projects.
