I was lucky enough to be asked to speak at the Michigan Girl Geek Dinner in East Lansing last night (more on that to come!). I had a great time and saw some wonderful projects guests were working on, including this Pac-Man cuff crated by bead and fiberart artist Jenny Schu. Jenny has been beading for years, but she just recently started experimenting with eTextiles – this cuff has conductive thread running through it to help making the small lights turn on when the cuff is snapped together. Pretty fantastic!
