April is lookin’ Geek Chic!

April is lookin’ Geek Chic!

Our theme this month will cover high-tech wearables, soft-circuits, geek-centric clothing (science and tech T-shirts and jewelry, etc), and maker style (the clothes worn by makers that are optimized for work). We’ll have original soft circuits articles and projects, round-ups of the best projects and posts we’ve featured in the past, some great give-aways, and more. Fun stuff. We hope you enjoy.

And, as always, we want to hear from you. Have you done any projects with high-tech clothing, worked with LilyPad Arduino, or conductive materials? Do you like to fly your geek colors with creatively sci-tech-themed clothing? Do you have beloved clothing items you insist on wearing while you work on projects? Please email us with your thoughts.
