Paris Lowitz Assignment 3 Part1

Here are two examples I found of some interesting switch applications:

The first one is a tv-b-gone, which can turn off televisions in public places, into a hoodie by using conductive thread to make a zipper-activated switch for the embedded device.

The second one is called Sixty Switches of Fury.  “It’s a controller made to look like a piece of suburbia. The large section of wall houses 60 (now 61) light switches each controlling a music sample. The switches are arranged in octives like a keyboard, but unlike a keyboard you don’t have to hold the keys down. Instead you just turn the switches on or off, creating a more natural and useful interface for those of us with only 10 fingers.”
