Overview of existing (multimeter) probes and how the connect to textile materials. Often, they are less then ideal to establish a reliable connection without harming the fiber structure of the textile.
Extending the research and experimentation on tools.
Sketches and prototypes towards more suitable probes to connect between a multimeter and electronic textile projects:
Sketches and prototypes translating the functionality of the often used crocodile clips to a form more suitable for electronic textile creation:
eTextile Tester, extracting one of the most used functions of a multimeter in eTextile projekts: to test continuity. Translating this function into a lightweight tool that can easily be carried around and connected to textiles. Switching between different probes allows the same tool to be used as continuity tester or 3V power supply.
