Here’s a fun looking project by Eli Skipp of Pumping Station One. Taking a departure from the permanency of traditional soft circuit crafting, she designed this customizable fabric light bright. To set up a display, you simply stick pre-bent LEDs where you want them, and they light up! The positive connection comes from the conductive thread strips on the front, and the ground gets connected to a conductive fabric strip on the back. The design just makes a static display for now, however with a bit of tweaking, it would be possible to support animations as well.
