After a lot of thought I've decided that mission critical wires need to be actual wires rather than thread, as things like the tx and rx getting shorted out or returning weird values isnt an option when your playing live, it all has to be bomb proof. Now there are still a few sensors acting funny and switches being intermittent in their response and this is clearly due to the thread. So firstly thats going to get replaced and ideally sewn between layers of neoprene instead of being latexed to see if that makes it more reliable and then dependant on the outcome I might need to break out the soldering iron again, I really dont want to, but the most important thing is that it works not that something in particular is used if its not suitable for the task.

More on the coding soon.... for now back to conductive thread experiements
