New classes were just announced over at NYCResistor, New York City’s hacker space, and this one on wireless wearableson December 14 sounds particularly interesting:

Get ready to explore the delights of mutual connectivity with the soon-to-be released XBee LilyPad! This class will introduce the communication and construction techniques necessary to create wireless wearables. We’ll start by learning how to communicate using XBee radios, including digital, analog, input and output modes along with an overview of other useful features. Once we’ve made contact, we’ll translate our circuits onto fabric, learning how to make flexible, durable, and attractive connections between components using conductive textiles and threads. By the end of the class, we’ll have our soft circuits conversing wirelessly and you’ll be ready to create your own clothing, toy or tapestry that talks!
