Does it start this week?

It was put off for a little bit, but should be up this week! I'll keep you posted!

so...uhh...what exactly is "soft curcuit"?

Think of all the electronics that you have nowadays with rigid circuit boards and mounted in a hard metal or plastic case. Soft circuits are electronics that you weave into fabrics with conductive thread as wires or electronics that you mount to gloves, jackets, dresses and make cool light-up garments. Also hard pushbutton switches are replaced by flexible membrane switches or activated by pressing on plush fabric buttons. I guess if you were to wire yourself up as the Borg aliens, it would be considered a soft circuit. Think of something for the contest! Good luck.

Eek! I don't know what to do! D:
