This felted crochet sensor project by Instructables user, push_reset, serves as an inspiration for my upcoming Computational Crafting class at Parsons The New School for Design. I appreciate many aspects of this project, from the aesthetic to the functionality. Aesthetically speaking, this project intrigues me. I find felt appealing both visually and as a malleable material that I like to incorporate into my work. Sensors often have a very singular look – metallic and cold – however, push_reset’s sensor is delightfully subversive in that it is inviting, touchable, and soft. As for the functionality, I read her documentation (which is excellent) and I appreciate that this flex sensor is seemingly rather reliable. I’ve had a slew of unfortunate experience with rubber and metal flex sensors, and found them underwhelming in their reliability. push_reset had similar experiences and then went on to make this sensor in order to have the aesthetic and reliability that she desired. Cheers!
