DIARY OF THE FLYING CLOCKMAKER
7.6. 2011 Meeting Reni
Velotex is resistive, with a decreasing resistance if bended or pressed. It therefore would work well as a cheap, sustainable and waterproof bend sensor.
Try to build a fabric bend sensor that’s water proof. Have been lazor cutting conductive fabric, worked well. (same setting as “leather”)
trying out more sensors
Now I try to assemble the two new clocks and think about better measurement systems (e.g. infrared-light-sensor, Ultrasonic Sensor, etc..)
Maybe cut something from an old plastic foil in a way that you can fold it like origami and use it as a wind sail.
