Circuit Board: Adafruit Feather M0 – Particle Photon
Material: Felt and velcro
Fabrication Method: Laser cutting
Method of wearing: Strap to wrist or arm
The form was designed to be able to accommodate either one Particle Photon or one Adafruit Feather M0 and a battery on its core and sensors/actuators on the top layer. The concept for the design is centered on the idea of strapping & folding the layers of electronic components, while allowing some flexibility in terms of placement on the body, choice of boards and sensors/actuators.
During the design iteractions, the factor that was most addressed was related to how easy it was to wear, to place the components in the form and how flexible the design could be to accommodate different projects.
When working with laser cutting felt for this particular design, because of the strapping system it’s important to highlight that the thickness of the material has a strong influence on the design.
We starts our experiments with the testing on different materials
