I thought you might enjoy the fabric pattern I designed based on the structure of vintage magnetic core memory.
After going to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California and seeing some there, I just had to incorporate it into a project. I designed the pattern in Illustrator and Photoshop, then uploaded it to Spoonflower for printing. I love that it’s an interesting enough abstract pattern on its own to still be attractive to someone who doesn’t know what it is, but if someone does recognize it then there’s a new level of geeky coolness.
After my Fitbit One took a swim in a full washing machine cycle, it died. Many attempts with rice and pampers and warm air over a few days failed to bring it back. The utterly fantastic customer support people in Fitbit then offered me a free replacement! The only tiny downside is that they don’t deliver to Ireland so I needed to use a Parcel Motel address. It just arrived yesterday so I thought I may as well have a look inside the dead one.
It’s bloody well glued together so it took a while. I could instantly see that there was no hope that it would have recovered. Horrible green corrosion on many places on the motherboard.
Growing up on a rich diet of dystopian tech fiction, we were filled with both intrigue and concern about Glass and decided to take our model apart to bring you a detailed view into the electronics guts of the device.
“…traditional knitwear is more soft and shapeless. I wanted to find out a new way to present knitwear and was influenced by Modern architecture and 60s Balenciaga.”
According to stylebubble, she also makes use of old jeans and processes them to create a knitting yarn. So jeans are remade as a soft knitwear and knitwear is remade as a form-holding silicone bells and bulbs. Using moulds, Li created sculpted silicone bell shaped sweaters and dresses, pushing a material normally used in industrial and commerical settings.
Circuit stickers are a new medium for making electronics. These thin, lightweight, flexible and sticky circuit boards allow us to craft electronic interactivity onto new spaces and interfaces such as books, clothing, walls, and even our bodies.
Circuit stickers are created by adding z-axis tape, a conductive adhesive, to kapton-based flexible PCBs. Below are example circuits created using conductive paint, copper tape and conductive thread as connective traces.
The ribbon is approximately 1.5 meters long, and has 30 white LEDs spaced equally along the ribbon. You can cut the ribbon easily but you cannot solder to it so once it’s cut, it cannot be re-joined. The battery pack has a simple controller that switches between a few modes: all on, fast blink, slow blink, and a slow fade in and out. It is powered by and comes with 2 x 12mm coin cell batteries, but you can also get some more from us. We also have extra battery packs. It is possible to cut the ribbon in half and then snap another battery pack onto the second piece.
Powered by 2 x CR1220 batteries
Dimensions: 15.43mm / 0.6″ x 30.47mm / 1.2″ x 10.54mm / 0.4″
This necklace is titled “Connected” and was created in 2008 with copper, nickel, guitar wire, glass. Its dimensions are 9” w x 5” h x 1/2” d. Each copper piece was made from an etched or hand stamped sheet of 18 gauge copper, which was hydraulically pressed into a acrylic mold/form and then cut, soldered with a backing, and oxidized. The center copper “on” button is set with a custom created glass piece. It is strung on a guitar wire and connected to a nickel 18 gauge wire.
iNecklace – Sophisticated. Elegant. Open Source. The iNecklace is a gorgeously machined aluminum pendant with a subtle pulsating LED. Perfect for the playa or with Prada. Made for women who celebrate art, science, engineering and great design. For any lady who loves technology and wants beautiful, geeky jewelry. Welcome to the future!
This is a new type of product for Adafruit, we want to create wearable electronics that are subtle, fun to wear and look classy.
Here is a technique for attaching and wiring LEDs on the hood of a sweatshirt.
Goals: - fun - modular enough to reuse parts, ease troubleshooting, and washing - bright enough to obscure my identity (cop flashlight effect) - robust enough for active wear in the desert/camping/warehouse. - optimize for cost

We’re very happy to present our Transistor Man T-Shirt in a Mens 4XL size! Lots of people have asked for this shirt in a larger size, and we’re happy to oblige.
Did you know that inside every transistor is a little man whose job it is to watch the incoming base current and adjust the collector-emitter impedance to match the datasheet? Its true! And now you can celebrate the hard-working guy with this fabulous Transistor Man tee shirt.
The front of the shirt has the now legendary Transistor Man diagram from Horowitz & Hill’s “The Art of Electronics”. Not only did we get a blessing to make these from Cambridge Press, we even got a scan of the original artwork transparency from Professor Horowitz! These are without a doubt, the coolest NPN shirts we’ve ever seen.
The 4XL shirts are 100% cotton, so they’re super-comfy and very breathable!
My all-in-one-piece Jordana Tank Top is named after one of my best friends, Jordana Martin. I wanted to do something where you could knit everything in one piece to limit the finishing. This is the first time I’ve knit something only in one piece!
