As I mentioned in an earlier post I am currently collaborating with Hove-based milliner Lizzie Lock on some forthcoming hats.
I now present our first ever soft-circuit for your viewing pleasure! OK so it’s not the most complicated in the world, we are just driving a single tri-colour LED in these pictures, but it proves that conductive thread actually conducts electricity, which still seems a little bit like magic. It’s so soft!
We are currently continuing our R&D using fibre optic strands and more, with a view to bringing some classically beautiful, yet technologically advanced hats into existence!
