Via the CRAFT Flickr pool, Marisa Ranalli made this totally amazing handmade electronic and fiber dress powered by LilyPad Arduinos and included LEDs and nitinol wire (an alloy that changes shape when electricity is applied). It’s her final project in the Textiles program at Sheridan College in Toronto, and it’s totally rad! I’d love to see a video about it. It will be shown at the Lennox Contemporary Gallery from April 30th-May 10th.
