Angela Sheehan runs the site Soft Circuit Saturdays and always brings great work to Maker Faire. From Wired.com:

Crafter Angela Sheehan creates and shares wearable projects that combine crafts and electronics. For her current project, “Soft Circuit Hula Hoop Experiments,” Sheehan wondered what would happen if you took the hooping community’s current fascination with LED-lit hoops and made it fully interactive.

The result? Prototype hoops that are lined with conductive material that activates the conductive-fabric circuits on her specially made shirts. Depending on the location of the hoop, certain lights will flash, or various musical notes will sound from an embedded speaker.

As for Sheehan’s favorite project, that came for a show in college, where she rewired stepper motors from a printer to act as small generators, and connected them to roller skates in order to light up the LEDs embedded in the skates, skirt and shirt of the skater.
