Conductivity Detection Glove

Introduction: Conductivity Detection Glove

Applications:

1. LED Lighting Testing

2. Circuitry Troubleshooting

3. Wearable Technology Testing

4. Conductivity Verification (Mobile)


Supplies:
1. Glove (Fabric: Knit)

2. BBC MicroBit

3. Power (Battery Pack)

4. Conductive Thread

5. Needle

6. Scissors

Step 1: Create the Conductive Sensors

For Fingers 1 - 4:

1. Invert the Finger Inside-Out.

2. Place Needle at Finger End (Photo No. 1).

3. Pull Needle through to the Outer Finger End (by Inverting) (Photo. No. 2).

4. Sew Multiple Coils at the Finger Tip (in a Circle) (Photo. No. 3).

Step 2: Integrate Conductive Thread

For Fingers 1 - 4:

Stitch the Conductive Thread along the Upper Side of the Finger towards the Wrist (to be connected to the MicroBit).

Step 3: Create the Conductivity Program

Program:

In the BBC Microbit "MakeCode": https://makecode.microbit.org

1. Create a "Forever Loop"

2. Conditions for Detecting Finger (Circuit)

a. If the Circuit (Electric) is Closed at Pin 0

Show: "1" for Finger 1

b. If the Circuit (Electric) is Closed at Pin 0

Show: "2" for Finger 2

c. If the Circuit (Electric) is Closed at Pin 0

Show: "3" for Finger 3

Step 4: Connect the Conductivity Sensors and the Microbit

For Fingers 1 - 4:

1. Sew the Conductive Thread through the Corresponding "Pin" in the MicroBit.

2. Coil the Thread at the Pin (for a strong connection).

3. Close the Coil (Knot) and Cut the Remaining Thread.


Legend:

Finger 1 = Pin 0

Finger 2 = Pin 1

Finger 3 = Pin 2

Finger 4 = Pin 3

Step 5: Integrate the Power (Battery Pack)

1. Connect the MicroBit Power (Battery Pack) to the MicroBit.

2. Insert the Battery Pack into the Glove (or Optional: Sew the Battery Pack onto the Bottom of the Glove).

Step 6: Test the Conductivity Detecting Glove

Testing the Conductivity Detecting Glove:

The photo has a finger pressing in order to Mediate the lack in Connection.

1. Press Fingers 1 and 2 (Together)

Result: "1" (Photo No. 1)

2. Press Fingers 1 and 3 (Together)
Result: "2" (Photo No. 2)

3. Press Fingers 1 and 4 (Together)
Result: "3" (Photo No. 3)
