Project of the Day: Winter is Coming

It’s the perfect time to build a heat controlling unit!

This tutorial for an eTextile Summer Camp Workshop taught by Bram van Waardenberg and Mika Satomi is the perfect introduction building a heating circuit for your thermochromic project or Nitinol wire project.

You will explore:

  • which conductive materials can be used as a heat element
  • the important properties to look for in any conductive materials,
  • bought vs made materials
  • controlling the heating sequence with a microcontroller  using transistor or relay
  • the kind of real energy source do you need for heating, which batteries or power adapter
  • the kind of heating effect, expression, can be expected in this simple setup
