Caitlin on the Maker Faire catwalk

Our fabulous Textile Enchantress Lynne Bruning  put on an e-textile fashion show at the World Maker Faire NYC 2010.  A collection from various makers who integrate technology into wearable fashion.  Caitlin modelled the blinking glove and i-hoodie which put some Instructables Righteousness into the show( ok, I had to bribe Caitlin to get on stage).  What an opportunity to showcase a project. Thanks to Lynne for giving us 15 minutes of fame. Below is the video from Lynne's website. Browse through to get some ideas for the Soft Circuit Contest.  Get inspired to make something for the next Maker Faire.

Open Software for Fashion Prototyping

This has got to be the most exciting thing to come down wearable technology pike! It's a FREE downloadable book about Arduino boards (both "standard" and LilyPad), conductive fabric, resistive thread, soft buttons, LEDs and more!! The eBook is split into three parts covering the basics of hardware, software and the use of the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment) in the first part. Part two give examples of using eTextile materials and the Arduino to make first cool projects involving LEDs, Piezo speaker and, the Digital and analog zipper.The third part is dedicated to show how to write programs for the Arduino platform. This all might sound very technical for fashion/clothing designer but dont be afraid, it's easily explained and covers just what's needed for wearable electronics (and not for building an new space station).I cannot wait to get started with this eBook! Finally, all the mysteries I had to ask others to program for me, unravelled! pun intendedDownload yours today. NOW! at Open Softwear
