We just received a limited number of the long-awaited Adafruit Flora in the Maker Shed! This versatile e-textiles platform enables you to make “smart” clothing other stitch-able projects that can interact with their environment. The Flora comes in a starter pack so you can get up and running with projects right out of the box.

MKAD51-2

The kit includes the Flora motherboard, GPS module, 8 addressable full color LEDs, components to make your own wearable TV-B-Gone, 2 thicknesses of conductive thread, needles, gator clips for prototyping, USB cable, batteries, and battery holder.

This really makes me want to create a speed sensitive jacket to wear while night skiing. I’m not sure what color to use for crash though…

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.

    Wouldn’t the answer to your “crash” question be red?

      I was thinking about red, but then what color would it I use I’m careening full speed down the mountain?
