Tilt, Time and Stretch Sensing Bracelets (2009)

A series of three bracelets that sense various interactions and give feedback.

Tilt Sensing Bracelet

A bracelet decorated with six conductive fabric petals and a row of beads with a metal bead on the end, makes for a simple six point tilt detection.

It is also designed so that the metal bead will make contact with two petals if it lies in between. and then of course it will make no contact when it is in the air due to throw or tipped upside-down.

This video shows the Tilt Sensing Bracelet together with a feedback bracelet. They are directly connected and the electrical connection made by the bead tilt sensor closes the power circuit for the LEDs mounted on the feedback bracelet. Just a simple way of showing how it works without using a screen.
