Students learn how to incorporate microprocessors into everyday materials and use them to enhance their language and writing skills with shadow puppet shows featuring their own DIY flashlights.
This book provides great activities to help people make new and exciting e-textile and wearables projects while still being able to build a strong understanding of electronics basics.
