Cool wearable tech from Irene Posch of Fashioning Technology.  The wool gloves have conductive fibers knit into the fingertip and palm areas.  Making a fist closes a circuit and lights up the LED arrows on the backs of the hands.  3V coin cells are accessible, but concealed, at the glove cuffs.  The conductive thread in the fingertips also enables gloves-on touchscreen use.  [via adafruit]

    I expect motorists to have headlights so they can see it when I’m turning. I only need my front and rear lights so motorists can see me from a distance.
