Needle Little Help

This was a collaborative prototype project with my classmate Zach.   It’s a pair of knitting needles that advance a stitch pattern when you tap the needle points together.

The needles have conductive points (made with copper tape) and are connected to wires that lead to this lil pouch.

The pouch contains an Adafruit Flora microcontroller, battery, and Bluetooth module which is what is sending information to the computer.

The computer program was written in Processing and used a serial connection via the Bluetooth module in the little bag.
