Jokes are superficial, not the real thing, not useful, not work, not producing. Anti-knowledge. No start-up. Loss of precious time.
Clownesque, sarcastic, aggressive, diverting, bugging. Just a stupid moment of fun. A candy for the lazy brain. A harmless, childish remark. An easy feeling of discovering a pun. Then go on with the real stressy stuff, trying to be useful for the world, helping people. Living is serious business - no silly smile allowed. Moving the world forward is our goal.
Laughing is contagious and is done together, laughing reinforces identity. These e-textile jokes are a secret code, only understandable for a specific group, there is a social nature.
Laughing and feeling good are promoting health. Laughing within a group is laughing about yourself. Making the feeling of the importance of me less dictatorial. Making the production urge less dominant. Taking some of the stress out of a holy call. This makes you also more digestible for others, improving cooperation, improving production effectivity...propagating the holy duty in the end...

Finally decided to sew all kinds of small electronic experiments on fabric. Easy for display and quite handy for transport in a box in my bag on my bike.
From very simple circuit demo's and soft buttons all the way to energy harvesting chips.
Most on 3.3V - coin cell battery, some on 4V lipo battery and a few on 9V.
All provided with switches.
Most microcontrollers ATtiny85, some ProMini's and some just transistors.
Light: LDR, temperature LM-37, MQ pollution sensors, touch sensors.
All images of the swatches can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/contrechoc/albums/72157664460566867/with/40642572592/
