1) Aniomagic- smaller easier to use Arduino cousin produced by a US firm. The toy right is an example of 1 of their kits.
2) Fibertronics- Geared more for the film and studio industry. These are better lights than the traditional wheat blinking lights. They have a fairly extensive online website if you want to drool a little go wander over there. You can also do a google search for fibertronics to see some wicked cool stuff.
3) Photovoltaic Cells- Built in battery recharging abilities, aka recharging purses. They're thin, flexible, and fairly easy to use. Portable energy is making a splash this year.
4) E ink- Printed screen Fabric that uses the same techology as your kindle or knook is now making it's way into clothing that changes on the go. You can see a cool example of this on the right. Think of a kindle (which is printed on paper, but for your entire wardrobe). It is primarily in gray-scale right now and the resolution is lower than a kindle, but as you can see from the jack on right, there are vast improvements being made by this company every year.
Can't wait to see what the industry comes up with next. It's always cool to see how much smarter our clothing is getting. Can't wait to see everyone for the next part the end of the month.
