More wearables goodness from Becky over at Adafruit. Folks have been crowing about the advent of wearable electronics for a long time, of course, and while it’s easy for prognosticators and futurists to predict these things in theory, it takes folks like Becky, down in the trenches, to actually make it happen.

One of the biggest obstacle Becky and other “wearables” designers face is fashion itself. Sure, you can make a suit studded with LEDs and walk down the street looking like a Vegas casino marquee, but who would want to? Becky works really hard to balance a sense of style and aesthetics with the tech, and it shows.
