Fashion Forward: Wearable Tech for Tomorrow’s Fashionista #wearablewednesday

thefutureofthings has a new article up on the future of wearable technology featuring Adafruit’s own Becky Stern!

Conductive threads and sewable battery holders are among the many open source DIY technologies offered by Adafruit for ladies wishing to create their own!
