TORONTO WEARABLES MEETUP 18: HOLIDAY HACKING
Friday August 19th, 2016

What great cheer and merriment was had at our festive Holiday Hacking meetup! Wearables keeners and newbies alike arrived with gloves and mittens, and even glittens, to embed soft electronic circuits into their winter gear.  Participants had the freedom to create their own circuits or construct one based on our three “holiday hacks”:  “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” illuminated mittens for friends and lovers, “Toasty Digits” warming mittens, and simple touchscreen gloves or mittens.  Through the use of conductive fabric, conductive thread, standard electronics components and basic sewing techniques, nearly everyone walked out of the meetup with amazing, totally functional and uber-cool modified winter gear.  See the illustrated circuit diagrams below to learn how these modifications were made.
