Make: Online, Collapsible Fabric Yagi Antenna

I just finished up my project, Collapsible Fabric Yagi Antenna for Make: Online. You can learn how to make one for yourself on the website.

A lot of people have been asking about my fabric color choices. I was inspired by the bright colors of Japanese hip hop clothing company Bathing Ape, and Kid Robot. I’m planning on putting a big Hello Kitty iron-on on the side of the carrying case… And adding some dangly bling. Then it will my sort of tongue in cheek “Hello Yagi.”

    I was only joking about the colors… The little balls holding the elastic are really, really cute! And the technique for home-made self-assembling “tent poles” looks like it would be useful for many projects.

    You might want to link to the Make: Online piece, too.

      Actually, you are not the only one who asked about this. Another person asked about this in the forums ;)
