Turn Signals In Your Hoodie

turn signals

Leah Buechley used the LilyPad wearable e-textile technology that she created to turn this jacket into an illuminated turn signal for cyclists, or pedestrians, or big wheelers, or even motorcyclists I guess.


You can buy all the Lily Pad series of wearable, sewable and believe it or not washable technology here. If anyone does anything cool with a t-shirt leave a comment and i’ll repost.

Found on Why Me, a very cool blog about design stuff.

  5. Cool! Is it really washable? I'm afraid it will no longer work after they've been washed.
