Caitlin on the Maker Faire catwalk Answered

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.

First, figure out if they are going to grow up to be an accountant, doctor, engineer, rebel, or lawyer. Go from there...

(C'dad's hoody and gloves get their mention at 1:46 in the video for anyone else that's looking through for them)
