Step 2: Electronic sensing rope manufacturing

The exhibit features our patented electronic sensing rope.  I visited a yacht rope manufacturing facility and worked with their engineers to produce the rope specially for this project.  The rope integrates electrical fibers into a standard polyester double-braid yacht rope.  Below are some photos and videos of this process.

Rope braiding machines are fun to watch!
