We describe the use of textile sensors mounted in a garment sleeve to detect affective gestures. The 'Sensor Sleeve' is part of a larger project to explore the role of affect in communications. Pressure activated, capacitive and elasto-resistive sensors are investigated and their relative merits reported on. An implemented application is outlined in which a cellphone receives messages derived from the sleeve?s sensors using a Bluetooth interface, and relays the signals as text messages to the user's nominated partner.
