CSED Week: Make a Light-Up Plush with Electronics


Create and customize a plush creature with light-up eyes using sewable electronics. Using a pre-programmed LilyPad LilyTiny board you will be able to choose from four light patterns: heartbeat, blink, twinkle, and fade to craft a unique electronic creature. The workshop will cover using conductive thread to connect electronics together directly on felt. Materials donated by SparkFun.

Registration required, for ages 10-adult and ages 8 & 9 with adult helper. Previous hand sewing experience recommended. Register on Boulder Public Library’s event page.

Designing Expressive Modular Wearable Hardware

What opportunities can DIY wearable tech create for the future of self expression? We’ll share prototypes of our modular system that can be reconfigured for a variety of interactions and style choices. Participants will creatively explore personalization through both code and hardware assembly to construct a unique piece of wearable tech to bring home. Participants will actively explore these ideas through customizing a wearable electronic project to augment their interactions with the world.

Available to registered Hackaday Superconference attendees. Registration info here.
