    Stretch sensors appear to offer the physical computing and wearables communities a solution in their flexibility. This paper introduces an interdisciplinary project in which knit, weave and embroidery specialists were brought together to examine how a carbon rubber sensor might be integrated aesthetically and functionally into different fabric structures. It reports on the drawbacks of the original commercially available sensor, and presents an exciting alternative direction using knit structures to build custom flexible sensors.
