The latest Star Wars film was eschewed in favour of videos of an LED switching on and off and an electronic yarn being see-sawed to destruction when the Advanced Textile Research Group met with their partner team from the University of Southampton last week. The two groups work together on the Functional Electronic Textiles project, finding methods of manufacturing electronic textiles. This includes testing electronic yarns to destruction. The photo shows the yellow, cushioned jaws of a tensile tester that is used to help find out if electronic yarns are sufficiently strong to survive being made up into textiles and then being worn.
