An e-textile prototype board developed by Alexandra Charland, a Creative Technology & Design and computer science double-major, was featured on Hackaday, a popular hardware hacking website.

After completing Arielle Dispenza's summer Object class, Charland worked with ATLAS PhD Student Chris Hill to develop the prototype in the post, which is based on ThreadBoard, a magnetic breadboard for embedded computing that allows for the rapid prototyping of e-textile circuits. Charland's modification includes reusable tie points designed to work with an adhesive substrate, such as felt. 

ThreadBoard was developed in CU Boulder's Craft Tech Lab and at the ATLAS Institute. It is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Award #1742081.
