AlphaFabric: A Wearable Textile Sensor for Continuous Touch Tracking and Gestural Input
AlphaFabric is a wearable textile sensor capable of continuous touch tracking and gesture detection. It is made of two layers of conductive striped fabric separated by a layer of non-conductive foam. AlphaFabric uses resistive technology to determine the X and Y position of the touch on the fabric. The sensor can be worn directly on the skin or integrated into clothes and still retain consistent measuring properties even during continuous movement.
