Smart Clothing

About the Smart Clothing module

Gone are the days when clothing is only a covering for the body – now smart clothing can hear your heart beat, tell where you are, or change with your emotions! Incorporating electronics into clothing is possible using conductive thread and tiny batteries. In this module, we design with light, learning how to create circuits to light up LEDs incorporated into clothing and accessories.
