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!

Knitic is an open source knitting machine, which controls a Brother electronic knitting machine via Arduino. The old ‘brain’ or control panel has been removed and replaced by Arduino, which allows us direct and immediate control over the needles. With it, one can knit as long a pattern as desired, as well as modify the pattern on the fly. Why are we developing Knitic? Because we feel the knitting machine, as the first domestic fabrication tool, has been totally overlooked in the age of digital fabrication.
Applying small, precisely cut pieces of wood veneer to felt fabric, Milan-based industrial designer Diego Vencato creates a kind of “wood mesh” that has almost the fluidity of fabric. Fabric patterns run from giraffe spots, to trapezoids to repeating triangles. via dezeen.
I just saw your teaser for the LED Suspenders and figured I’d share this. I made a set of RGB Suspenders for myself and a down-angled belt of blue LEDs for my girlfriend for her turnabout dance. The suspenders are nylon webbing with RGB LED strips glued to the back controlled by one of those 3-button controllers and a lithium pack. A single color controller drives the belt.
