Enrich your DIY wearable electronic toolbox with a learning sensor

DIY_smart_sensor.jpgRemember the first time I posted about a company called Aniomagic introducing the cute wearable electronic modules for easy interactive fashion prototyping?

Since then, Aniomagic kept on expanding their wearable electronic module portfolio with modules like the Mimeolight. The newest addition is a range of learning sensors, the smartest and simplest wearable electronic module on the market.

The ‘learning sensors’ are targeted towards interactive fashion designer and DIY enthusiasts who do not want to dig too deep into the complex task of learning software and IC programming but rather spend their creativity on designing smart clothing.

You can just sew them up, press a switch to calibrate them, and you have an interactive fashion project that can respond to changes in light, temperature, acceleration, pressure, sound, etc.

No need to instal software, connecting extra hardware, or figuring out a new programming system.

The sensors have three states: M turns on when the level is ‘normal’, H turns on when the level rises above what you set and L turns on when the level falls below what you set.

To calibrate the sensor at neutral or ‘normal’ stage is as easy as pressing a ‘calibrate’ button. For example, if you calibrate the temperature sensor at room temperature, it will turn on the appropriate output if temperatures rise or fall by 10°F.

Each learning sensor comes with seven sewable holes for sewing it onto textiles with conductive thread.


Currently there are three learning sensors availabel: one is light-sensitive, another is temperature-sensitive, and the third allows you to hook up your own sensor.

The cost of each sensor is $10.- but if you order more it becomes cheaper. Check out Aniomagic’s online store for the learning sensor and other smart modules to complete your next interactive fashion project.
