Textile kit of the day

0crafttty.jpgLeah Buechley believes that fabric circuits don’t have to mimic the look of traditional PCBs. She laser cuts a circuit board out of conductive cloth and turns it into a washable, easily-interfaced miniature cloth computer. Each patch contains a surface mount (SMT) ATmega8 microcontroller and an SMT switch, LED and resistor.

The construction kit was designed to empower novices to work with electronic textiles; each patch functions as a stitchable Arduino.
