Button Pad Updates

On March 20, 2013, in Blog, Electronics, by Vlad Cazan

As a requirement for my masters degree I am required to produce a project researching one aspect of media. I wanted to continue my work on the Button Masher while creating a new and interesting method of communication and programming. I wanted to have a system that wasn’t as large as the Button Masher but […]


Making Fabric to PCB “SnapBricks”

On November 27, 2011, in Electronics, by Vlad Cazan

As I continue my exploration with e-textiles and fabric based inputs, I ran across a problem when trying to prototype some wearable buttons I had made. I needed a way to connect the conductive fabric to a prototyping board so that I could make it more rigid and “wearable”. I tried soldering the fabric to […]

In the last few months I have been working on designing new methods for inputs on wearable e-textiles. The original “fabric button” consisted of two pads made from conductive fabric that would make contact and act as a standard button. While this design does seem to be fairly accurate and simple to build, it is […]

Button Masher – TIFF Nexus Peripheral Initiative

On October 31, 2011, in Blog, Electronics, Game Development, by Vlad Cazan

The story to this post started in early May when my teacher Richard Lachman asked me if I wanted to participate in this initiative called “TIFF Nexus”. He didn’t tell me much except that there was going to be game developers and hardware hackers and it was going to be a whole lot of fun. Skeptical but intrigued I […]


Building My Own Arduino – Vladuino

On June 20, 2011, in Electronics, by Vlad Cazan

After my trip to Creatron Inc (local toronto electronics shop) I really wanted to build my very own Arduino from scratch. I had already gotten and AVR pocket programer from Sparkfun’s annual free day so all I needed to buy was a few resisters, some capacitors, a transistor, a few switches and an Atmega chip. […]
