Instructables Build Night: How to Make Soft Circuits Answered

Instructables held a "themed" build night on Thursday, August 14--the first installment in the new Build Night Series.

Rachel taught a brief lesson about soft circuits and conductive threads/fabrics, and participants got to do some pillow anatomy and see the insides of LED vibrating pillows, fabric sensors, and other electronic-fabric creations. Then, everyone tried to build their own soft circuits in whatever style they wanted.

Check out the promo video below and, if you're interested and in the SF Bay Area, come to Make your own Mouse Mouse with Christy on September 11 or another upcoming event.

The office--aka build night workshop extraordinaire--is located at:
489 Clementina Street, 3rd Floor
San Francisco, CA 94103



We hope to see you there!

Do you have to bring your own mouse, or have you got the traps down?

Yes, I understand that, I'm just pointing out the significance of a 3,000 mile wide hunk of earth between you and the Build Night.
