->The method of digital zipper sensor is multiple switch. The metal zipper - copper, nickel and aluminum zipper - has appropreate structure for liner multiple switch. My initiate thought was that when metal zippers are closed it will have continuety from top to the bottom. But the fact was not. Each teeth are separated from each other unless the tape is bent more than 120 degree angle in vertical. This means each teeth can transfer different data. So if I tie the conductive thread to touch the opposite side tooth when the zipper is closed, I can make a single switch. And making the switch in regular distance in the zipper will create liner multiple switch.

->I made two different types of input with zipper sensor - analog and digital. My initial thought was to make liner analog potentiometer by using the slider as connecter. Yet during producing, I begin to think any handmade physical device might be not reliable to use as sensor. Conductive thread might create some iragualer resistence. Stiching unit is not always exactlly same so that the value change would not follow exactlly as the movment of the slider. Thus I planed to make an analog and a digital zipper sensor with in same length so that both can be compared with the motion reading. For analog I used plastic zipper to secure disconnection between both sides. And for digital I used nickel zipper because some of the teeth will function as contact point of switches.

There are three different types in the market in terms of materials: brass, nickel, aluminum and plastic. I went to [[http://www.zipppershop.com | Panda international]] (38th st between 7th and 8th ave, New York) to see all kinds of zippers and bought the biggest size of each. (So it can be easier to work for prototyping.) I checked the conduction. Bass was most conductive followed by nickel and aluminum. Also, I checked continuity if teeth are touching each other when it is closed. They donít connect enough to work as a switch just by the zipper itself. Observing the physical object really tells me how to add the function to it. Let's see [[http://www.zipppershop.com/zipper.html| the structure of a zipper. ]]

Zigzag stich is recomended to assure the continuity. From My experience just one line of conductive thread is not reliable. Because thread is easy to tear out during sewing and even after use. So when hand sewing two line is better to secure the continuity.

I used 45 peices of 220 ohm resisters to make 10k ohm variable resister. By banding the wire of the resister I made hook to sew it through. If you want even less volume than normal resister, you can use tiny surface mount resister. To tie with the thread, solder conductive beads at the both end of the resister.
