Description of Swatch: Action origami techniques provide the possibility to develop textile structures with more than one configuration. The swatch – Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) Switch – is inspired by Jacob’s ladder toy and explores the ability to control two electrical circuits, at different folding phases.
The toy’s morphology was studied and a folding variation developed in order to achieve a greater number of configurations.
This work addresses on-going research focused on e-textiles screen-printed with conductive pigments.
