Lights & Magic - Wearable Electronics Class

Wearable Electronics is a recent development in tiny computers.  To add a light show, we use sewable LED's called NeoPixels, and connect to a computer the size of a silver Dollar and a battery pack.  The circuit is completed by using stainless steel thread rather than wire, which makes the circuit flexible - and washable!  Click here to see a short Christmas Tree Video.
