Via @davidonformosa, Leah Buechley’s Turn Signal Bike Jacket made with her Lilypad Arduino. Leah was recently in Taiwan giving a workshop at the Department of Fashion Design at Shih Chien University which resulted in part in the class making one of her ‘e-textiles’ projects. In her words: “…on the steps of Shih Chien U, prototyped by me w/ parts from the taipei electronics markets & made by (awesome) Shih Chien University fashion students”.
I love this stuff.
