HackSpace Issue no. 6 - Circuit Playground Express Tote

In this tutorial, I show you how to sew a Circuit Playground Express onto the front of a tote bag, for a project that’s portable and endlessly hackable. We take advantage of the built-in capacitive touch on the CPX by using conductive snaps as touch-sensitive buttons.

HackSpace no. 4: Wearables Cover Feature

For issue number 4 of HackSpace Magazine, I wrote a massive feature article on getting started with wearables. It's packed with information on how to build for the human body, from design concepts to choosing batteries and microcontrollers.

The article also includes a gallery of inspiring makers and their mind-blowing work in wearables. Free PDF of the issue available here.
