Designing with Smart Textiles – ancillary tutorials
The Internet of Soft Things project has contributed to material for a new book on Designing with Smart Textiles, shortly to be published by Bloomsbury (see listing here).
This post lists the ancillary tutorial material listed in the book. Each link will take you to a short tutorial. Links will be added as material is developed.
