Dan Riley made this textile ribbon cable, which has 8 wires made using conductive thread. Functional and fashionable!

This is a textile ribbon cable made with colorful bomull and conductive polymers. The conductive polymers are only in the warp and used to connect into electronics. The first true ribbon cable carrying up to 8 circuits across your body in style.

Of course, you can just buy ribbon cables made from regular copper wire that have been woven together using thread, but where’s the fun in that? [via how to get what you want]
