Today on Maker Camp: Squishy Circuits and Wearable Tech
Squishy circuits!

Diving deeper into this week’s “Create the Future” theme, today on Maker Camp we’ll explore circuitry with electrical engineer Matthew Schmidtbauer who will tell us all about squishy circuits. We’ll also be joined by wearable technology designer Grace Kim and experience designer and Fashioning Technology author Syuzi Pakhchyan.

Today’s project will let you make your own piece of wearable technology — a light-up hoodie!

Make this illuminated hoodie.

The lights go on right here at 11am PST. And be sure to post a project of your own on the Maker Camp community page on Google+.
