Here is my e-Vest, finally, as pre-announced over a year ago …. I re-used the vest this year for another application (the one shown), but I provide instructions on making both the earlier project and the current one in my Technique “Making an e-Vest (electronic vest)”. I will be reusing the vest for a while to support other e-garment applications. The vest itself is fairly basic (well, so are the electronics!), but putting the two together is still (a little bit) avant-garde, although it is happening more and more these days!
Black cotton with a felt-like surface, black bemberg lining, black thread, conducting thread, wiring, batteries, fiber optic cable, an LED sequential strip, a controller for the LED strip, inverters for the fiber optics cables, metal snap fasteners, electrician’s tape, banana plugs, a cloth switch. Ideally a soldering iron should also be used. Note that you need to have some basic knowledge of electricity to do this project.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
