Tack your Gait!




Everyone has a certain Gait-Rythtm! ..influenced by architecture and our surrounding. This Project should Tack your Gait and find yours.

Story

the basic layout on cork 2mm

the velostat-foil and copper-stripper

cutting out for cabeling

copper stripes with cabels

detail of soldering

build up sensors for left and right! cabeling sealed with silicon!

gluing on 2nd cork 2mm

finished up side with fizmatte

finished down side with moosgummi

The second Thing was cabeling to arduino:

Making a Little circuit-board for connecting sensors and Bluetooth-Module to sensor:

Schematics
