I recently received some e-textile components in the mail from an Italian company called Plug and Wear (www.plugandwear.com). In the interest of full disclosure, I should state that the company had seen my past posts on e-textiles and sent some sample products free of charge. Free or no, e-textiles are pretty cool, and I’ve been enjoying experimenting with the items they shipped.
I received the five different items shown at left. I was particularly interested in the conductive tape, which comes in a range of bright colors. I was hoping to use it in lieu of conductive thread for a colorful project, but needed to know its conductivity before determining what to do with it.
