Heater Module

On one hand, it’s just a gigantic resistor. On the other hand, it’s flexible, light, and can be smartly used in a project. Originally designed for portable wearable heating pads, this fabric can be wearable, weather balloons, diy-bio projects, thermal cycling for materials testing, etc.

The temperate can be controlled using any microcontroller, the more voltage you apply the hotter the pad will get. Setup is very basic you only need a positive and negative connected to Arduino, however you can add a potentiometer to control the temperature level.
