The LOOMIA E-Textiles 101 Workshop is an introductory program designed to give you firsthand experience making circuits with our patented e-textile technology. You’ll walk away from this course with a more clear idea of how multidisciplinary ideas become a reality, and an understanding of what it takes to make wearable tech, or other e-textile products.
Together with LOOMIA, you’ll learn how to make a heating pad, and how to read data from pressure sensors. You’ll also learn the basic terminology of electronics prototyping, and receive the tools to understand a basic tutorial from Adafruit or Sparkfun. If you are more experienced in prototyping, you can increase your knowledge base and learn more about how e-textiles can add functionality to your product design. This workshop is a good foundation for those looking to understand the skills and thinking required for developing wearables, e-textiles and more.
